The assignment requires to reflect on the ‘object’ biography and the role of scientific methods on its interpretations. The question leading the essay is: Why do we want to know? By analyzing the object biography of a case-study, the essay may explore (but not limited to) questions of technology and heritage evaluation, value attribution, development of digital humanities, connections between tangible and intangible, conservation vs restoration, etc. Think of: how does an object assume meaning? How can different narratives coexist? How to solve narratives in conflict? Can science help to further the understanding of narratives? Where does interpretation help science?
