Transcultural Languages: 3D Reconstruction of the Wampo Canoe, and Its Interpretation Through Intelligent Technologies on Digital Fabrication

Abstract

The heritage rescue promoted since 2003 by Unesco in its convention for the safeguarding of the Intangible Cultural Heritage is the foundational basis of our research group, which focuses on the generation of new cultural expressions with the integration of state-of-the-art intelligent technologies. Our objective is to rescue, transcribe/translate and create new expressions based on cultural based raw material and elements. Housed as a project exercise of the Innovation and Territory Laboratory of the Design Department of the Catholic University of Temuco, this work proposes to explore new cultural/artistic experiences. For this purpose, we have identified and selected symbolic elements of the native peoples that inhabited the current Chilean territory, specifically the Mapuche nation, located in Araucanía region. In this case we do a photogrammetry process of one of this canoes and start to thinking about its re-construction with new methods of fabrication, and also propose new materials for the speculative propose. At the end of this work we can offer a several approximations of a new ways of reconstruction, not necessary based on functional approach,
but also in a perspective of give some point of discussion about the new technologies and its ethical role.
