Thanks to recent advances in semantic enrichment technology, researchers Matthew Woodham and Benjamin Shirley-Quirk
have reconstructed a kinetic, interactive lantern from plans found in manuscript fragments dating from the 7th to 16th centuries. Transforming Artcore Derby into a truth-illuminating lighthouse, this proof-of-concept demonstrates a technology both new and old, which promises to revolutionise decision-making throughout government and industry.
East Midlands-based creatives Matt Woodham and Benjamin Shirley-Quirk were selected for one of these Collaborative Project Bursaries delivered in partnership between Artcore and NMG Development Programme, aimed at paired looking to work collaboratively to develop and
deliver a project together.
