Time Machine Academy: Lillo 1640 – Methodology and Workflow of Virtual Reconstruction is a free online course destined to share the principles of virtual reconstruction. The interactive course will present how-to do virtual reconstruction through the case of the 17th-century fortress of Lillo, Belgium.
The course dates:
- Friday, 16 June 2023 – 14:00 to 16:00 CEST
- Friday, 30 June 2023 – 14:00 to 16:00 CEST
- Friday, 7 July 2023 – 14:00 to 16:00 CEST
The course will feature an array of software solutions, mainly focused on the methodology and workflow of virtual reconstruction projects from archive to operational 3D application. The course will require live multiple-choice and exercises between sessions.
All you will need is:
- A working computer with an internet connection and a recent web browser
- An intermediate level of English
- One of the following software applications:
Visual Dimension bvba effectuated the fortress’s virtual reconstruction with the Centre for Urban History at the University of Antwerp and the European ‘Recapture the Fortress Cities’ (RCF) project. A VR application around Fort Lillo and its surroundings is available thanks to the Belgium-based VirtuaFort research project.
“Time Machine: Invigorating European History with the Big Data of the Past”
Time Machine Organisation (TMO) is an international organisation blending technology, science and cultural heritage. Time Machine creates a collective digital information system that maps Europe’s economic, social, cultural and geographical evolution across time. These include digitisations, document segmentation, AR/VR, and even “simulations of hypothetical spatiotemporal 4D reconstructions”.
The course is an excellent opportunity to learn and actively engage with virtual reconstruction. Heritage management and digitalisation now go hand in hand, with more and more projects adopting digital methodologies and tools. The sector’s professionals, however, lack the capacity to undertake alone such projects, making this Time Machine course uniquely necessary.
