The s+a3 project: leveraging analytic resources

  1. 1. "The S+A3 Project: Leveraging Analytic Resources" Tom Johnson Managing Director Inst. for Analytic Journalism Santa Fe, New Mexico USA [email_address]
  2. 2. Objectives <ul><li>New Mexico is a poor state in the traditional definitions of the 19 th and 20 th centuries </li></ul><ul><li>New Mexico is a rich state IF we can recognize we are in the Digital Age </li></ul><ul><li>A proposal for economic development </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Little capital cost </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Large commitment to change </li></ul></ul>
  3. 3. The catalyst: Lienzo de Quauhquechollan www.lienzo.ufm.edu /
  4. 4. Lienzo up close….
  5. 5. Restoration story <ul><li>Trans-disciplinary team anthropology, archaeology, chemistry, epigraphy, ethnobotany, digital technology, film animation, graphic design, history, law, photography, storytelling and textiles </li></ul><ul><li>Digital restorers, animation programmers, script writers, and narrators. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Restoration story <ul><li>Photographers captured high-resolution images of the original at the Casa de Alfeñique Museum in Puebla, Mexico.  </li></ul><ul><li>For maximum resolution </li></ul><ul><ul><li>divided the surface of the Lienzo into three rows and five columns. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>For each of the 15 sections, they created a 4 x 5 inch reprography plate (negative) and a scan.  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The quality is so high that individual threads of the cloth can be seen clearly. </li></ul></ul>
