Conference on image re-integration

From: Jean E. Brown <jean.brown>
Date: Thursday, May 1, 2003
The Image Re-integration Meeting
2nd Triennial Conservation Conference
Northumbria University
Organised by A.Jean E.Brown
September 15-17, 2003

Aims and Objectives: The replacement of missing elements of an
image, or decorative surface, is often referred to as image
re-integration. The 2nd Triennial Conservation Conference at
Northumbria University will be a cross disciplinary meeting to
investigate the range of approaches taken by different conservation
disciplines to image re-integration issues. Approaches and attitudes
towards these procedures partly reflects the diversity of objects
treated, but also results from the influence of a range of historic,
cultural, aesthetic, practical, financial and ethical considerations
as well as a consideration of the original or current function of
the object. The selection of the most appropriate image
re-integration techniques can often be problematic since this is
often based on subjective decision-making skills rather than on an
objective evaluation of diagnostic criteria. This has sometimes
resulted in conflicting approaches to similar types of object or a
complete rejection of any attempt to re-integrate the original
elements of the artefact.

In order to better understand the attitudes that have developed
regarding re-integration issues the conference will present papers
reflecting the approaches taken by different conservation
disciplines. Each paper will describe the function of the object
under consideration as well as the re-integration techniques used
and the rationale used to guide the approach selected.

The meeting will be held at Northumbria University, Newcastle upon
Tyne from September 15-17, 2003
