The Institut Polytechnique de Paris is pioneering a transformative approach to experiencing culture using metaverse technology. Under the “Métavers du patrimoine” project, researchers are creating 3D representations of artworks and cultural artifacts, which can be visualized in immersive virtual environments. This initiative aims to preserve cultural heritage while making art collections more accessible to a global audience.

Immersive Cultural Engagement

Using advanced techniques such as photogrammetry, the project digitizes artworks to capture their intricate details and present them in virtual worlds. This method involves taking multiple photographs from different angles to construct a precise 3D model of the object. The result is a detailed and immersive representation that users can explore in the metaverse, transcending the physical limitations of traditional museum visits.

Expanding Audience Reach

Adopting metaverse technology is expected to attract a broader and younger audience accustomed to digital content consumption. Virtual museums can offer interactive and engaging experiences that appeal to tech-savvy generations. By breaking down geographical barriers, these digital exhibits can also reach individuals who may not have the opportunity to visit physical museums.

Ethical and Practical Considerations

While the digitization of cultural objects offers numerous benefits, it also raises ethical questions regarding the modification and representation of ancient artifacts. Additionally, the current limitations of VR hardware, such as comfort and affordability, need to be addressed to ensure widespread adoption and a seamless user experience.
