Rendering the Past \ Panel Discussion (2017)

New rendering and image making techniques like photogrammetry and LIDAR scanning are allowing us to visualize previously hidden or forgotten histories. Archaeologist Dr Alice Watterson and artist Dr Kieran Baxter, both experts in digital surveying and visualisation, talked through recent projects and the opportunities and challenges digital reconstruction presents for new forms of storytelling, archaeological research and animating the past.

This panel was a collaboration with NEoN Digital Arts Festival, supported by Creative Scotland.
