In this talk, Bernard Frischer will trace the development of humanists’ use of 3D digital technologies over the past twenty years. He will argue that as these new digital tools have been adopted and more widely used to capture and represent 3D data of cultural artifacts on various scales from cylinder seals to entire cities, humanists have come to understand that their true power lies not so much in their ability to illustrate knowledge as to serve as discovery tools for generating new insights. As such, they have the potential to transform the way humanists think about the past.
