Evangelos Kanoulas et al Receive NWO Creative Industries Funding
Project ‘Art DATIS’ Receives NWO Creative Industries Funding
Funding for research on glass production and technique
NWO has granted a funding of ca. € 500.000 for the project Art DATIS for the Integration and improvement of sources on glass for a Sustainable future. Evangelos Kanoulas (Informatics Institute UvA) participates in this project that will recruit two PhD students: a glass historian and a data scientist.
How were historical sources used to innovate glass production and education in the twentieth century? And how can we efficiently link the enormous amount of newly digitized art technical sources on artistic glass production, such as object documentation, technical texts, images, and research data? These are the central questions in the NWO research project that will start in 2018.
The project will digitize unique materials from the archives of glass artist Sybren Valkema (1916-1996), managed by Stichting Vrij Glas, and integrate and enrich them with existing databases containing different kinds of data on the history of artistic glass production. The project is designed to link with the RKD Explore and ARTECHNE databases. The latter, directed by Marieke Hendriksen, is part of the ERC Artechne Project led by Sven Dupré.
Involved researchers are Principal Investigator Prof. Sven Dupré (UU/UvA), Dr Marieke Hendriksen (UU), Prof. Evangelos Kanoulas (UvA) and private partners RKD Netherlands Institute for Art History (Anita Hopmans and Reinier van ‘t Zelfde), Stichting Vrij Glas (Durk Valkema) and Picturae (Mark Lindeman). The project will recruit two PhD students – a glass historian and a data scientist. Both will be embedded at the RKD and Stichting Vrij Glas.
