In 1992 an interesting discovery was made at the Westwerk Corvey. The renowned Corvey scientist Professor Dr. Hilde Claussen found sinopies on the masonry in the mainhall of the Johanneschoir. 30 years previously stucco pieces were found in a floor renovation. When she was able to match those stucco pieces with the sinopies on the masonry, the sensation was perfect. The goal became to document the UNESCO world heritage site in a meaningful and timeless manner for future generations.

EXPONATEC COLOGNE convinces with pioneering themes and an exceptional mixture of exhibition and event programme. It links the classic core segments of the museum, conservation, restoration and cultural heritage with future-oriented trends like virtual reality, 3D staging and new digital developments in the fields of restoration and scenography.
poses crucial questions about the potency of digital replicas to absorb audiences in enduring emotional encounters with universal art treasures. This exhibition opposes the use of ‘deepfakes’ for manipulation and misinformation, to explore very different perspectives, reimagining objects through advanced computational techniques.
Often the goals in institutions span across many areas. From creating digital exhibitions, opening up collections for research opportunities or simply conserving artifacts in the most timeless fashion. Therefore many of our partners urged us to create a system for a wider range of artifacts and we developed the CultArm3D FT10, which combines versatility with exceptional quality.
When the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin (MfN) visited the Fraunhofer IGD, they brought a wide collection of objects that up to this point were difficult to capture in 3D. The advantages of digitizing the collection range from conservation to research while also having the opportunity of a digital exhibition that visitors can experience from all across the world.
