Methodology for sustainable digital restoration

Abstract : Digital restoration is a research methodology that focuses on the study of the object, on the restitution of its original aesthetic aspect and on its re-contextualisation. It is situated between digitisation and virtual reconstruction and aims at the restitution of the original appearance of an object by using computer graphic technologies. It can be used as a support for different kind of research projects and its results are excellent didactic instruments in the communication of the artwork to the public. In order to make digital restoration sustainable both the results and the methodology employed need to be documented and communicate in a complete and accurate way. This article focuses on the best practices of digital restoration and on the methodologies of its documentation and communication.
