7AAVMAVH Applied Visualisation in the Arts
20 credit module, runs in the Autumn semester.
This module provides an introduction to the contexts and practice of computer-aided visualisation for Arts, Humanities and Cultural Heritage research and communication. It teaches students how to apply best practice in the use of 2D and 3D visualisation methods for the documentation and interpretation of artefacts and sites as expressed in The London Charter for the Computer-based Visualisation of Cultural Heritage (2009).
Through a combination of seminars and workshops, the module gives students a sound understanding of the possibilities and challenges of visualisation, an awareness of key aspects of the national and international contexts in which such work is taking place, and basic practical skills in two-dimensional and three-dimensional visualisation. The module offers a framework within which participants can critically evaluate past and current projects, identify and assess opportunities for the application of visualisation technologies, and plan and carry out a visualisation project.
The module is taught by members of King's Visualisation Lab who are internationally recognised as being at the forefront of establishing and implementing best practice in humanities and heritage visualisation, with additional input from digital artist, Michael Takeo Magruder.
