Digitizing Materiality: The Materialized Body, Digitization, and Surrogacy

Join us for the second in a series of collaborative workshops. This session will showcase rare materials from the Wellcome Collection.




This workshop will explore the theme of the body and the materiality of scientific objects in the digital age in three parts, focusing on digital surrogates in collections. The three sessions address the benefits and challenges of digital surrogacy across media, spanning medieval manuscripts, early modern pop-up books, 18th-century paintings, and 19th-century wax modeling.
