SLANECKÝ HRAD AKO VIRTUÁLNE MÚZEUM
Slanec Castle as a virtual museum
Languages of publication
Virtual reality and virtual cyberspace represent the state-of-the-art approach to museum presentation and visualization. The latest trends focus on applying virtuality in various forms (such as 2D and XD, augmented reality, CAVE systems and holograms) and these are commonly implemented as the so-called Virtual Museum with three distinct levels with differing technical approaches and types of virtual design: website visualizations, virtual reality applications and artificial intelligence applications. At first, this paper examines the implementation of these techniques in current museum practice with a number of concrete examples. Then, we focus on a case study, that of the remnants of the Slanec Castle (Košice county) and its reconstruction (in its so-called ideal reconstructed form of 1898-1907/1910 with some contemporary architectural elements) in a virtual museum where we analyse the varied aspects of this endeavour from its conception through the required research, documentation and design all the way to the final output intended for public consumption.
