Last week, the CHI team headed to the Big Apple to deliver a custom-built lighting array to the Museum of Modern Art Conservation Department, and to conduct a 4-day training session with MoMA conservators and guests. It was wonderful to work with such an accomplished, collegial group whose insights inspired us every step of the way. By the end of the week, the group had accomplished RTI’s ranging from a Jeff Koons basketball to a Brancusi sculpture, as well as paintings by Gottlieb and Gorky, a Schwitters collage, and several photographs for an important photograph characterization study. Many thanks to Jim Coddington and everyone at MoMA for their generous hospitality. We look forward to continuing to work with the MoMA staff as they begin to incorporate RTI into their work.
