ArtasMedia is a company that specialises in the reconstruction and dissemination of digital heritage content. Created in 2012 by Grant Cox, a graduate of the archaeological computing (Virtual Pasts) course at the University of Southampton, our aim is to produce content that is engaging for the viewer, academically credible and at the highest technical level. One of our main objectives is to bring greater transparency and discussion regarding artistic discourse into the heritage sector. We specialise in photo-realistic CGI, both still and animated, but also work with a range of 3D content from laser scan to motion capture data. If you have a digital problem you need to solve, please feel free to contact us.
Grant Cox is a digital artist/archaeologist currently based in Southampton, England. After completing his undergraduate degree in archaeology (BA Hons) at the University of Southampton, in the winter of 2008, he began studying for the Virtual Pasts (MSc) masters course, overseen by Dr Graeme Earl. Here he excelled, graduating with a distinction, before becoming the Lead 3D Artist for the Portus Project in the summer of 2011 & an ongoing course assistant on the aforementioned MSc program.
In late 2012 he formed ArtasMedia, a company created to combine high quality CGI content with informed visualisation and through his contacts within the heritage world, he has continued to create both academic and commercial work for a series of high profile sites. Grant prides himself on his personal connection to ArtasMedia projects, ensuring that he is always on hand to manage the integration of research with visual imagery and frequently acts as a mediator between the client, research and the final product, ensuring that quality, narrative and credibility are always equally balanced.
