Printing Tutankhamun’s Tomb

Mari L Tut Interior

Madrid based Factum Arte’s facsimile of the tomb of Tutankhamun, recently installed by Howard Carter’s House at the entrance to the Valley of the King’s on the west bank in Luxor, is a main achievement in the use of high resolution digital recording and the 3D rematerialisation of data in the service of archeology, preservation, and sustainable tourism. Mari Lending just visited the facsimile and is working on a project on contemporary print culture and new print media, transitioning from textual to digital paradigms.
