Maps & Models: Round up of Spring 2015 Course Projects


This spring, Wired! course projects focused on uses of mapping and modeling technologies to answer questions pertaining to art and architectural history.

In Introduction to Art History with Professor Caroline Bruzelius, students created spatiotemporal exhibits to explore movements of materials used to create various material objects throughout ancient and medieval history.

In The Medieval Castle in Britain with Dr. Matthew Woodworth, students created digital reconstructions of medieval British castles, historic or imaginary to explore political, economic, and technological influences on castle-building processes.

In Alexandra Dodson’s Rock, Paper, Chisel, students discussed materialities and contexts of medieval art. Their final projects included a digital restoration and recontextualization of a stained glass window and digital reconstructions of two damaged sculptures.
