#NEWPALMYRA Launches the #PALMYRAVERSE Building Campaign with LikeCoin Ethereum Tokens Paid to Artists

Columbus, Indiana — Today the #NEWPALMYRA project launched the #PALMYRAVERSE, with a global building campaign. The #PALMYRAVERSE is an online space where monuments from Palmyra come together across time and space. The campaign sets a monthly prompt for artists, designers, technologists, and researchers to come together and create for the #PALMYRAVERSE with 3D modeling, Augmented Reality, and Virtual Reality. Each month, a rotating panel of judges from the fields of art, cultural heritage, and technology will select the top three works for prizes. Starting Monday, October 1st, artists and Makers are invited to create works inspired by the Temple of Al-Lat and submit them on newpalmyra.org. Winners will be announced November 1.

The judges for the first round of works are Razan Al-Hadid, Public Lead at Creative Commons Jordan and Independent Art History Researcher, London based technologist and educator Mahmoud Max Wardeh, and Majd Al-shihabi, Palestinian-Syrian urban planning graduate, developer of Palestine Open Maps, and recipient of the first Bassel Khartabil Free Culture Fellowship.

“#NEWPALMYRA has produced five models monuments destroyed in Palmyra, Syria, starting with the Temple of Bel, Triumphal Arch, Roman Theatre, and Baalshamin,” said Barry Threw, Executive Director of #NEWPALMYRA. “Most recently released was the Tetrapylon, made in collaboration with Creative Commons and re:3D, the largest 3D printed column structure in the world. #NEWPALMYRA also created the first 3D model added to Wikipedia, the Lion of Al-Lat. Our announcement today is a drive to complete the monuments from Palmyra, but a pledge to open up the possibility of a future space where all may collaborate, with incentives in cryptocurrencies to fuel work.”

In support of the #PALMYRAVERSE project, #NEWPALMYRA has partnered with the LikeCoin Foundation, who plan to provide technology to support feedback on submissions from the community-at-large.

“At LikeCoin Foundation, we are reinventing the like. We are proud to support the creators of #PALMYRAVERSE monuments – not just through technology support, but also our LikeButton, which rewards creators daily for their likes,” said Kin Ko, co-founder of the LikeCoin Foundation. “Submissions to the #PALMYRAVERSE could receive LikeCoin incentives daily as users engage with monuments through our system and also larger rewards for selections made by judges.”

The #NEWPALMYRA #PALMYRAVERSE announcement is released today at the Exhibit Columbus National Symposium, an annual conference of architecture, design and art with specific focus on cultural architectural preservation. #NEWPALMYRA Executive Director, Barry Threw will present the current status of the project and explain in more detail the future of #NEWPALMYRA and the #PALMYRAVERSE. Also, on special exhibition during the conference is the 7.5-feet-tall Tetrapylon.

“The #NEWPALMYRA project is a tremendously meaningful preservation effort and we are honored to have Barry Threw attending our symposium this year,” said Richard McCoy Director of Landmark Columbus the parent organization of Exhibit Columbus. “#PALMYRAVERSE is an innovative way to continue growing this global project to care for cultural heritage.”

請協助我們一起保存敘利亞瀕危的文化遺跡:帕米拉遺址,為#NEWPALMYRA新帕米拉計劃創造一個虛擬的數位工具,從歷史廢墟中重建我們的文明與未來

關於#NEWPALMYRA計劃:

  • 它是一項數位考古計劃:我們和網路協作社群合作,針對近日被ISIS徹底摧毀的帕米拉城蒐集資料、加以分析,在虛擬空間中加以重建,並將其數位模型與基本數據於公共領域分享。

  • 它是一項文化發展計劃:我們透過工作坊,連結藝術家、工程師、考古學家、建築師與不同專業工作者,一起考據探索、重建遺址,並鼓勵據以創造新的藝術作品。

  • 它是一項策展計劃:我們與世界各地博物館、展覽機構合作,透過展覽和活動分享敘利亞的文化資產,鼓勵人們透過建築的視角,展現文化與力量。

透過國際網絡與你的協作,我們將#NEWPALMYRA新帕米拉計劃蒐集到的考古歷史、數據資料分享給世界各地的社群成員,鼓勵創造更多相關展覽、沙龍、創作,以將其豐富的歷史資產傳遞給新的世代。

我們很需要你的幫忙!

我們誠摯邀請你加入我們的行列:不論你是3D 工程師、考古學家、策展人、程式設計師、教育工作者、媒體工作者、研究者、維基人,你可以協助我們:
