landscape, archaeology and art

Last night the opening of Art from Archaeology in the Vale of Pickering,  Etched lines in a linear landscape. A collaboration between The Landscape Research Centre and artist Paul Musgrove.

Paul’s work is beautiful, and a thought provoking way of increasing access to archaeology, the artist transferring the plotted results of geophysical or air photographic survey into something similar, yet different. Assigning a new set of artistic values to the science of archaeological observation.  In some respects making tangible the intangible record of archaeological discovery done in a digital age.

The exhibition is open now until Sunday 30th October.
