There is a desire to push for innovation in the field of archaeology. Technologies like photogrammetry, point cloud scans, and additive printing are being utilized to document historical sites to cataloguing entire museum collections. The breadth of my research focuses on how Virtual Reality can be used as a tool to preserve the past and build new knowledge for our future. During this examination, questions arise around an object’s authenticity, as Aura, and whether or not this is a transferable attribute from something with materiality to something with no physicality, such as a digital reconstruction.
