ExLab 2

sotonDH are partners in the Exlab 2 Project. The project, organised by The Big Picture artists collective, will result in a series of artworks being produced in response to the Jurassic Coast world heritage site. Each artwork represents a unique collaboration between an artist and a scientist or a scientific team. The project will form part of the Cultural Olympiad which will accompany the London Olympics during 2012.

Members of the Archaeological Computing Research Group are bringing a unique range of technical and digital expertise to the project as well as contributing a deep understanding of the ways in which these techniques allow us to better understand historical landscapes and objects. They have been working with artists to assist in the production of artworks which make use of some of the cutting edge recording techniques which are central to their work in archaeology.
