This demonstrator is based on the website ‘Closer to Van Eyck – Rediscovering the Ghent Altarpiece’ which presents the Ghent Altarpiece (1432) in visual light macrophotography, infrared macrophotography, infrared reflectography and X-radiography (closertovaneyck.kikirpa.be). In total, the website contains more than 100 billion pixels of image data, hence processing and presenting such a huge amount of data posed significant challenges. This allows for very thorough studying of the work of art, but during a lesson it might prove difficult to quickly navigate the website. Thus, in the framework of Europeana Space, a demonstrator was developed to facilitate the use of the digital resources of the webiste in an educational context.
As part of this demonstrator in E-Spaace, a seminar was organized in Brussels in November 2016 that showcased the use of the seminar in a real world setting.
