How do we effectively preserve the traces and evidence of our past when it is being destroyed? As the Past is the repository of humankind’s diversity of experiences, it is also the source of inspiration and solutions for a peaceful future. So, when confronted to its destruction, how do we preserve the information it conceals? Iconem’s comprehensive approach relies on collaboration with local communities to implement high-resolution 3D scanning and ethnographic recordings of historic environments. From Afghanistan to Mali and Peru, new technologies help create hundreds of digital twins of these sites and their stories. These solutions are made available through an open access platform to share this knowledge and bring it where it’s needed, , contributing to preserving the memory of our societies and our cultures.
