Forensic facial reconstruction is an interpretation of human remains in an attempt to depict the likeness of the deceased, using a combination of art and science techniques. In this online demonstration held via zoom forensic artist, Karen Fleming will show the process involved when recreating a full facial reconstruction using a replica skull, and discuss the scientific methods that are used when only skeletal remains are available to aid in the identification of a person.
Karen Fleming has an MSc in forensic art and facial identification from The University of Dundee, along with a BA (hons) degree in painting from Edinburgh College of Art. She has recently been working on 2D facial reconstructions from ancient skulls excavated in Edinburgh which can be viewed on her website.
