My name is Alicia and I am currently studying for an MA in Digital Arts & Humanities. I hope to look at Irish Roadside Art or Public Art and investigate ways in which these can be made more accessible to the public. I would love the opportunity to create an interactive database where all members of society could engage and learn about the artworks in their locality.
I am very interested in the aspect of using 3D scanning technologies to create a simulated experience, allowing users to talk around and interact with the pieces. I hope to also look at the locality where the pieces are located and provide the Artist information, the historical relevance of the piece and possibly the native flora, fauna and animals of the area.
Geo-Tagging is something that I’d love to use for this project. The ability to have information prompted to the user when in specific locations would be exciting.
This idea comes from my background in Fine Art and Art Teaching. I have a grá for Irish Heritage and I look forward to seeing how we can make the most of our wonderful culture.
Thanks for stopping by
