Mhairi Maxwell

Mhairi is an archaeologist by training with research interests in 3D visualisations including its applications for community engagement, art and material culture studies (including 3D convocal laser scanning, 3D printing, photogrammetry and Reflectance Transformation Imaging/RTI). I have a growing interest in digital crafting and am a member of a digital-artist-designer collective called RAFT. Ethnographies of artistic practice in and outside the studio have played a central role in her research. I have collaborated with craftspeople and artists in my Master’s and more recent work.

Currently I am engaged on research projects based at the School of Simulation and Visualisation, Glasgow School of Art exploring the use of 3D visualisation technologies for heritage and more creative applications in contemporary artistic practice. In addition, I have experience engaging communities outside of academia with these technologies; for example the ACCORD project with Dr Stuart Jeffrey, DDS.
