              With growing popular and academic interest in the development and importance of three-dimensional modelling and technologies across a range of practices, this book advances analyses of three-dimensional models from perspectives in anthropology, anatomy, architecture and history, ...examining the ways in which models shape perceptions of bodies, buildings and histories. Focusing on models in practice - that is, on how they have been made, used and interpreted over time in social and cultural contexts - 3D Modelling: Bodies and Buildings in Anthropology, Anatomy and Architecture, explores the importance of models in the constitution and communication of knowledge. With attention to the multiple and changing ways in which models are created and employed, the material dimensions of models and their implications, the kinds of knowledge generated by models in action and the social relations formed through model making and use, this volume engages with current debates concerning material culture, knowledge production and creativity. Presenting detailed empirical case studies from across a range of disciplines, it addresses key questions surrounding the reasons for which models take particular forms, the effects of their material and visual qualities in relation to bodily action and the senses, and the ways in which they carry or disrupt cultural values and ideals. As such, it will appeal to scholars across the social sciences and humanities with interests in in the connections between knowledge, practice and perception.

              This volume brings together a cross-disciplinary group of anthropologists, researchers of craft, and designer-makers to enumerate and explore the diversity and complexity of problem-solving tactics and strategies employed by craftspeople, together with the key social, cultural, a...nd environmental factors that give rise to particular ways of problem solving. Presenting rich, textured ethnographic studies of craftspeople at work around the world, Craftwork as Problem Solving examines the intelligent practices involved in solving a variety of problems and the ways in which these are perceived and evaluated both by makers and creators themselves, and by the societies in which they work. With attention to local factors such as training regimes and formal education, access to tools, socialisation and cultural understanding, budgetary constraints and market demands, changing technologies and materials, and political and economic regimes, this book sheds fresh light on the multifarious forms of intelligence involved in design and making, inventing and manufacturing, and cultivating and producing. As such, it will appeal to scholars of anthropology, sociology, and cultural geography, as well as to craftspeople with interests in creativity, skilful practice, perception and ethnography.

              In this innovative volume, anthropologists turn their attention to a topic that has rarely figured as a focus of concerted investigation and yet which can be described as an intrinsic aspect of all human knowing and part of all processes by which human beings process information ...about themselves, their identities, their environments and their relations: the imagination. How do anthropologists use imagination in coming to know their research subjects? How might they, and how should they, use their imagination? And how do research subjects themselves understand, describe, justify and limit their use of the imagination? Presenting a range of case studies from a variety of locations including the UK, US, Africa, East Asia and South America, this collection offers a comparative exploration of how imagination has been conceptualized and understood in a range of analytical traditions, with regard to issues of both methodology and ethnomethodology. With emphasis not on abstraction but on imagination as activity, technique and subject situated in the middle of lives, Reflections on Imagination sheds new light on imagination as a universal capacity and practice - something to which human beings attend whenever they make sense of their environments and situate their life-projects in these environments - the means by which worlds come to be.

              The landscapes of human habitation are not just perceived; they are also imagined. What part, then, does imagining landscapes play in their perception? In this book, the contributors argue that landscapes are 'imagined' in a sense more fundamental than their symbolic representati...on in words, images and other media.

              Explores the potential of a graphic anthropology to change the way we think about creativity and perception, to grasp the dynamics of improvisatory practice, and to refocus the study of material culture from ready-made objects onto the flows of materials involved in the generatio...n of things.
