The Infrartsonic Project

Wednesday, 10 January 2007 from 12:30 to 13:30 at Jacobo Auditorium

SUBMITTED BY: Gaby Maamary

DEFINITION: The infrartsonic is a scientific non destructive, non invasive method for testing and examining museum objects.

OBJECTIVE: The aim of this project is to develop a new scientific approach toward studying art objects mainly painting without having the need for cut sampling thus contributing to the destruction of the art work.

STRUCTURE: The infrartsonic project is a three year project based on the collaboration of several international Mediterranean academic and scientific professional institutions in a shape of a consortium funded by the European union. The consortium is composed of several institutions on the basis of one institution per country. Members are engaged to provide specific tasks performed by chosen researcher each specialist in his or her domain. The researchers are chosen to represent their respective institutions in the structure of the historical and technical data base compilation, in computer engineering such as 3D imaging and developing and mechanical engineering.

I myself represent the Saint John of Damascus institute of theology at the University of Balamand as a researcher in charge of the scientific, aesthetic and technical examination of the patriarchal monastery of Balamand miniatures of the 13, 18 and 19 century manuscript.

We just cloturated the first year, WP2 phase and going.

All researchers meet on three month basis in their respective country where demos and development are presented and updated.

This is a mega project on both academic and scientific levels for the University of Balamand from which other professional credibility and scientific researches are to be considered as an important asset and praised added value.
