The renowned Madrid-based foundation Factum Arte present a series of roundtables and workshops at the Project Space, culminating on April 13 in a talk, open to all, titled Traditional and Digital Artisans Meet, exploring the ways in which new technologies are being used in both architectural conservation and contemporary art.  Known for their particular expertise in scanning and digital technologies, Factum’s work has ranged from the replication of Tutankhamun’s tomb to producing complex works for contemporary artists, such as Rachid Koraichi, Anish Kapoor and Marc Quinn. By using the restoration of the Stoppelaere House in Egypt as a case study in technology transfer, training and non-invasive means for preservation, Factum Arte will explore the importance of sustainable tourism and touch on how they became innovators in the field of heritage management.
