InsightART: Space Technologies for Artwork Analysis

During the last week of April the InsightART company will hold a set of workshops at the Czech Embassy in London and will introduce their special X-ray equipment for analysing works of art to art experts.

RToo, the new scanner, is equipped with state-of-the-art technology  originating from  space research and is world-patented  by its parent company Advacam, a NASA certified supplier. A smaller version of the detector is currently used on the International Space Station to analyse the radiation to which astronauts are exposed. The unique/exceptional sensitivity of the detectors used in the new X-Ray scanner allows for unprecedented outputs in artwork analysis. 

InsightART combines two seemingly unrelated worlds: arts and physics. The company achieves it by applying cutting edge tools to the study of artworks. The core of InsightART‘s work is analysis of paintings and other objects using X-ray imaging. 


Programme:

Wednesday April 25th - breakfast & workshop, afternoon tea & workshop
