Expressions of interest: Graphics Showcase
For this year's display we would really love to emphasise how important good illustration and imaging is to our profession and the skills and the processes that are involved in it. We are looking for expressions of interest from members who would be interested in showcasing their work. We wish to demonstrate how we take the information given to us initially and use our specialised skills and expertise to create clear, informative and beautiful illustrations that greatly enhance the understanding and communication of the archaeological data found.
If you have a recent case study you'd like to put forward, please email groups [at] archaeologists.net by 24 February 2020.
We are the special interest group for all aspects of visualisation within the heritage sector. Whether your specialism lies in illustration, survey, photography, geospatial analysis, reconstruction art or any other form of imaging and visualisation, we represent your area of specialism to CIfA.
