Automated surface scanner: processing multi-view image data for large scale planar artworks — Xavier Aure
In this talk Xavier Aure and Thomas Bale will present their recent work on the development of an automated image-based 3D scanner to record the structure and colour of planar surfaces of artworks. The system is based on the combination of photogrammetric and photometric stereo images and generates high-resolution 2D and 3D data that can be used for documentation, visualisation and public engagement applications. Xavier will present the scanner and some results from the recording of the painting.

Cryptic Landscape — Sarah Rhys
Cryptic Landscape is the title of an exhibition of Sarah’s work at The National Botanic Gardens of Wales. The title evokes the miniature and mysterious botanical worlds of lichen and moss. These organisms are also cryptogams which means their reproduction is often unseen; Linnaeus described this category as like a ‘hidden marriage’. Whereas other plants had stamens and flowering parts and were described as having an ‘open marriage’.

These books of handwork and hybridity remember the body… — Angie Butler
Through studying and working with poets, printers, artists, designers and others across a series of projects in the UK, Europe and the USA, I have identified particular methodologies and methods of application by individual practitioners who use letterpress printing to make their artists’ books. These methods are important to document and establish benchmarks and standards as part of the tradition of good studio practice in an expanding field. A baseline for assessing the physical and psychological relationship of the practitioner to their equipment and the commitment to the practice of letterpress printing within artists’ books practice.
All talks will begin at 12.45, feel free to join us from 12.30, for a chat, to socialise and to meet new people. For help on how to use Remo https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P01JxUBNU2Y
