Texture to screen and back again: Exploring the manuscript as material landscape (2021)
Presentation / Conference
Aure Calvet, X., & De Filippo, A. (2021, October). Texture to screen and back again: Exploring the manuscript as material landscape. Presented at Unbound: Exploring Accessibility in Book Exhibitions

The textures and materialities of the pages of a manuscript are often concealed by conventional modes of display, which tend to present a manuscript as a static two-dimensional surface. Yet, if we can reveal the page of a manuscript as a physical env... Read More about Texture to screen and back again: Exploring the manuscript as material landscape.

The reconstruction of the appearance of the Acancéh frieze by 2.5D printing (2020)
Conference Proceeding
Klein, S., Trujillo Vazquez, A., Calvet, X. A., & Parraman, C. (in press). The reconstruction of the appearance of the Acancéh frieze by 2.5D printing

The aim of the project is to reconstruct the appearance of the Maya frieze of the Palace of the Stuccoes in Acancéh Yucatán, dating from c. 350 BC to AD 850. The frieze itself is destroyed by now but was documented by Adela Breton in 1907. Her waterc... Read More about The reconstruction of the appearance of the Acancéh frieze by 2.5D printing.
