Perceiving the enhanced realities of colourful collections through AI and virtual experiences
PERCEIVE aims to create a new way of perceiving, preserving, conserving, exhibiting, understanding and accessing cultural heritage collections and coloured digital artworks, promoting their re-appropriation.
Its ambition is to reshape the way coloured artworks are studied, reproduced and displayed, preserving them for future generations.
This project is a unique opportunity to explore the beauty and fragility of coloured artworks and to assess the challenge of colour conservation and reconstruction with researchers and multidisciplinary experts from 8 countries and 11 institutions.
It is led by a consortium of European partners:
– 4 museums, including the MANN in Naples, the Munch Museum in Oslo, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London and the Art Institute of Chicago, will present their collections, activities and priorities.
– 3 companies (Anamnesia, Imki and Hoverlay) and 5 research institutes, CNR ISPC, the German Fraunhofer IGD, the Greek FORTH, the Norwegian NTNU and the Swiss HSLU, will try to pave the way for innovation in the museum visitor experience and for a future of new discoveries and re-appropriation of these diverse collections, but with one common element: colour and its perception.
