WIRED! New Representation Technologies for Historical Materials

Students enrolled in WIRED! in Spring 2009 explored how research and study in material culture and the visual arts can now be expressed by using new visual technologies to record and communicate complex sets of visual and physical data from urban and/or archaeological sites.  They learned techniques for the presentation and interpretation of visual material by using a series of interpretive and reconstructive technologies, integrating HTML, Adobe Photoshop, Adobe Illustrator, Google Sketch-Up, Google Maps, and Adobe Flash. Two sites, Aphrodisias, a classical archaeological site, and Piacenza, a medieval urban/architectural site, provided the context for the students' final projects.

WIRED! was team-taught by Rachel Brady, adjunct associate professor of visual studies; Caroline Bruzelius, Anne M. Cogan Professor of art history; Sheila Dillon, associate professor of art history; Mark Olson, visiting assistant professor of visual studies; and Raquel Salvatella de Prada, visiting assistant professor of the practice of visual arts.
