Middling Culture workshop

🍵 1 min to read (suggested)

Yesterday I went to a workshop organised by Graeme Earl (KCL and soon SOAS) and Catherine Richardson (Kent) for their AHRC funded Middling Culture project.

The event was held in a former curry house next to the National Gallery, which has been turned into their R&D venue and was a bit more rustic than many imagined 😃

The workshop was a chance to discuss the project with the team, and to see the Unreal Engine 5 reconstruction of upper-middling status room from the 1620s. This reconstruction was built by Grant from Artas Media and demonstrated how far his skills had come on since he was first commissioned to create a numismatic reconstruction for the BM money gallery.
