Colouring Archaeology

Our colleagues from “Archäologische Illustrationen” in Berlin are starting a campaign to fund an archaeological colouring book. Although this is not a first, it seems that this is the first colouring book focused on high-quality motifs. We spoke with Anja, Conni, Martin and Viki to learn more about their project and what to expect.

Article about the reconstruction of Piramesses

If you wondered how the reconstruction of Piramesses came to live, you can find a very short article about it in the CIPEG journal. The article gives a short introduction into the site itself by the excavator Henning Franzmeier. The article closes with a description of the reconstruction of the site and some selected buildings:

“From the Nile Delta to Karlsruhe: Or How to Present Mud Bricks in an Exhibition” by F. Franzmeier and S. Hageneuer

New design is online!

After over two years of silence, we revive this blog! It has been a long time since we wrote something in the blog and occasionally updated our portfolio. This is due to several reasons, mainly a lot has changed for us and we needed to structure our work with Artefacts differently. In the background, we still worked on and with Artefacts though and still continue to do so.

Promo: Pi-Ramesses

Here is a small preview of our animation currently to be seen at the exhibtion “Ramses – Göttlicher Herrscher am Nil” in Karlsruhe, Germany. With this, we wish you all a merry christmas and a good start into 2017!

Ramesses exhibition nearly open!

The work on the exhibition of Ramesses II. in Karlsruhe Germany is nearly finished. Our animation with the reconstruction of the city center is already in place and works smoothly. The exhibition opens this Saturday, the 17th of December 2016, at the Schloß Karlsruhe. For further information visit the official homepage of the Landesmuseum Karlsruhe.

Soon, we will also release a teaser trailer for the exhibtion, so stay tuned.

Published: The Oxos Temple

One of our reconstructions got published in an article by Gunvor Lindström about the Oxos Temple in Tadzhikistan. The project page of that project is still not on our main site, but I am sure it will follow soon. In the meantime, you can give the article a read, it is in deed interesting.

Structure from Motion (SfM)

As another side project, I tried the “Structure from Motion”-method and recorded it. The results can be seen above. I had no color chart lying around, so there is no color correction. The result is not perfect, but pretty good. It is amazing what the software is able to do these days. The process of calculating the 3D model from the photos took about 4 hours (you won’t see that in the video). The process of rendering the final image in the 3D software was much quicker. Hope you enjoy!
