Digital Reconstruction in Archaeology and Contemporary Performance

In collaboration with the Computing Department of Goldsmiths College, University of London, the Centre for Intermedia was awarded an AHRC/BT Pilot Research Networking Scheme award for 'Digital Reconstruction in Archaeology and Contemporary Performance'. Dr Marco Gillies (Goldsmiths) was Principle Investigator and Professor Nick Kaye was Co-Investigator.

The project initiated new interdisciplinary collaborative research around digital technologies for reconstructing and accessing lost cultural sites and events. These cultural events ranged from archaeology to contemporary performance.

It brought academics, practitioners and technologists together to explore the use of established technologies across traditional discipline boundaries as well as applications of new and emerging technologies. The workshops it hosted were focused on generating new concrete research collaborations and proposals.
