Phygital Palimpest

Stefan Gant

Dr John Pouncett, School of Archaeology, University of Oxford

‘Phygital Palimpsest’ results from an interdisciplinary exchange between fields of contemporary drawing practice, archaeology and significantly an interplay and fusion with digital archaeological spatial technologies. Imagery born from this process is discernible as land matter through profile, suspended in an ethereal and ambiguous environment. There is a corporeal hint as forms are composed through line and cyclical marks, while conversely the pixels extend a sense of post-human, post-medium and visual complexity driven by data and code, appearing fragile and formative in construct.
