About the author

Andrea Baucon, Geologist
head consultant for Interactive and Multimedia Exhibition Tools (UNESCO Geopark Naturtejo Meseta Meridional)

Andrea Baucon is a geologist and paleontologist with the UNESCO Geopark Naturtejo Meseta Meridional.
The author is active in scientific research, dedicating himself to the study of fossil and recent traces (ichnology). He is interested in using ichnological data to inspect the interactions between organisms and environment, especially under a behavioral point of view. He took part in several geological and paleontological missions, focusing especially on the fossil record of Portugal, Mongolia and the Alps.

Baucon is also specialized in geotourism and, in particular, in popularising geological heritage through Digital Media. Indeed he authored computer animations for documentaries, interactive exhibits and art festivals.
Among his creations, it is worth to cite the interactive exhibition "From Trilobites to Man" (Natural History Museum of Lesvos, Greece) which attracted 35000 visitors in just three months and has been invited to the UNESCO National Meeting (Portugal). Baucon also created "Geodelica Trilogy", a Video Art installation mixing music, fossils, computer-generated graphics, animations, fractal art and petrographic thin-sections. This work was hosted in the Boom Festival, one of the most important music festivals in Europe.

At present time, his work is concerned with the relationship between field geotourism and digital media (
TERRAGAZE mobile project), and with the paleozoic trace fossils of the Pramollo Basin.
