HOW AND WHY DO WE PRODUCE THINGS?

Archaeological researchers illuminate how our mind is involved in the production processes behind ancient textile technology. They investigate spinning by use of a 3D method, which can capture all motions from our movements and reveal how craft traditions develop over time.

The method is called MoCap, which means motion capture, and it records the movement of objects or people in 3D. It uses a multiple camera setup only working in the infrared spectrum on markers placed on the tools. In our first tests, movements are sampled c. 250 times per second with very high precision.
