#NEWPALMYRA (2015 - )
Live printing in the galleries of 3D models from the #newpalmyra project, which uses digital participation and digital fabrication to develop digital 3D modelling of archaeological sites recently destroyed by Isis. The ancient Syrian city of Palmyra was a vital crossroads of trade and culture, an archeological treasure that suffered a senseless destruction by ISIS. #NEWPALMYRA.org is an online community attempting to virtually reconstruct this cultural heritage under the Creative Commons Zero license, recreating Palmyra in virtual space and sharing the 3D models in the public domain, to carry the rich history of Palmyra forward to new generations.
