December 2017 – Based on my talk “New Technologies in the Preservation of Cultural Artifacts with Spatial, Temporal, Corporeal, Kinetic Dimensions: Artifacts in the Trinidad Carnival” at CHNT21, my paper (of a different title) was published in the conference proceedings.

Abstract: Historic cultural artifacts with spatial, temporal, corporeal, and kinetic dimensions (STiCK) are large three-dimensional sculptures or structures that are performed by the body, occupy large amounts of physical space, and exist in their best physical form for a short period of time. They usually require a lot of space for storage, performance, and exhibition; are best understood in three-dimensions; are susceptible to decay and damage; and are not properly understood if displayed independent of the body. Using four traditional STiCK artifacts in the Trinidad Carnival as a case study, we illustrate how these artifacts can be displayed and interacted with using parametric computer-aided design, augmented reality, and embodied computer interaction. This work has potential implications for design, heritage, the Trinidad Carnival, and for
historians, researchers, designers, and computer scientists.
