Art and artifacts experienced through technology

How is the meaning
of art and artefacts being altered by the methods we use to: Experience
them... In other words, in what ways have technologies been used to experience, re-define and/or preserve art and artifacts?

I came across news on a technique using terahertz radiation
to 'see' under the surface of paintings and murals. I know that similar methods have been used before, most especially to see the sketches under (Leonardo da Vinci) paintings or to map the outline of archaeological sites by satellite etc. I am interested in amassing a collection of such techniques, not limited to paintings and certainly from a wide spectrum of scientific and technological applications (for instance: art includes literature or music, artefacts can refer to objects or cultures, a new technology may simply be a new theory of linguistics).
Any links and or examples, books, journals, people you know of would help me immensely. My past questions express quite neatly the kind of reading background I have, please give them a glance
if you have time.
