A documentary investigation into Ruskin, Viollet-le-Duc and the long-term effects of Restoration on the Built Environment
In collaboration with Travis Kennedy and the organization ARCHiVe (Analysis and Recording of Cultural Heritage in Venice), SOE used digital documentation techniques to record architectural sites in Venice funded by the William Kinne Traveling Fellowship. SOE used photogrammetry to continue scholar John Ruskin’s project of “watching old buildings with an anxious care” through documentation while also interrogating the enduring relevance of Ruskin’s 19th-century ideals as a basis for 21st-century preservation. The final products of this work will be featured in a published monograph and used as a pilot project for ARCHiVE at the Cini Foundation.
