Feature #1500

Updated by Alexander Watzinger 6 months ago

*Update about implementation*
We need an (additional) event class to enter the creation of an artifact and it should be possible to:
* Link the artifact which was created
* Link actors as creators
* Link a place of creation

*Original issue text*
An artifact is, like the name Man-Made-Object tell us, produced, created and modify by a human being or a group. For tracking the origin and history of an artifact, it is relevant who created which object at what time and where. The same questions arise with a modification.
For example a prayer book is often created by a priest, monk etc. when a new church, monastery etc. was established. This book was inherited by the successor, which often create side marks/annotations or maybe also erase whole pages, which can and should be tracked.
Same use case arise for art, like paintings, icons, busts, objects of prayer, small shrines etc. Even if we don't know the real creator, it would be useful, who gave, when and where, the order to create it (which is in most historical cases more important than the creator itself). This can be very important, because it can be a sign of political power display, religious appreciation, transformation or conflict.
Or, if graffiti is classified as E22, it is very important to know, who created, when which graffiti, and who modified it.

I can gladly give more examples if needed.

I think some projects will benefit from a new event, where the creation and modification of an artifact can have a creator/donor/contractor, timestamp of the creation/modification and place of origin. Additionally, would anything discussed in ticket #1462 also be very beneficial.

So my question is, can and will this be done? The CIDOC CRM mapping should support this quite good in several way.
In my humble opinion an event E12 Production with P108 has produced (was produced by) and E11 Modification and P31 has modified (was modified by) would be useful for that. But surely, there is a way to include everything in E7 Activity, since it is the super class and play it which types (which would be not so beautiful in my opinion).

I hope I could state my point.
