DigiMuse Presents: Project Insight @ ACM (Maritime Trade Gallery)
View an alternate dimension of Two Port Views: Amoy and Fuzhou, a set of paintings from two principal ports in China’s Fujian province. Assume the role of a painting conservator, see damages on the 19th century paintings under UV light and try your hand at conserving them with a choice of tools.
