With its unique Byzantine cultural asset, Karoussos Archive provides a navigation aid through the process of research by acquiring a first-rate cultural asset for analysis that can support both the exploration of research questions and the infrastructure for testing, prototyping and documenting. Original worksheets from the frescoes executed in Byzantine churches, photos and slides from the work in situ, remain intentionally unpublished so they can be used as a first-level resource for research on cultural heritage and digital / emerging technologies. Moreover, various models of technological practices which are compatible with the cultural asset of Byzantine frescoes in churches (parabolic mirror projections, immersive and achieropoesis practices) are available for testing and documenting, along with recommendations, depending on each research project.
