On Wednesday, October 10 at 2:00 pm (Eastern), Stefan Michalski, a Senior Conservation Scientist with the Canadian Conservation Institute (CCI), gave a tour of CCI’s Light Damage Calculator. The Calculator provides an estimate of the fading that might occur to the color of various objects when exposed to different amounts of light. The user may choose from numerous scenarios including the type of colorant in an object and lighting environments to determine the cumulative fading effect on an object. Stefan explained, the Calculator will continue to expand and become more robust as new colorants and parameters are added.
The Calculator can be used to inform collections policies, demonstrate need for fundraising, aid in exhibitions planning, and more!
