The 3D Virtual Buildings Project
The 3D Virtual Buildings Project is a project that has two fundamental aims:
• 3D Model Creation — To teach students to generate models of 19th-century heritage structures
• Critical Thinking Skills — To use the process of 3D model construction to teach students to distinguish historical representations from the objects to which they refer
The HistorySpace Project
The HistorySpace Project is dedicated to supporting the creation of scholarly representations in three- and four-dimensional environments. More specifically, it is dedicated to the creation of:
• Complex Objects — Objects that change their shape and surface appearance in response to user interaction and changes in world time
• Narrative Objects — Objects that enable authors to specify narrative pathways in virtual worlds, and to attach multi-media content to those pathways
• Documentation Objects — Objects that enable viewers to examine the data -- the primary sources -- used to create a given object in a virtual world
The DataScapes Project
The DataScapes Project seeks to explore how data translation can be used as a basis for creating Landscape, Skyscape and Seascape Art, using Augmented Reality as the medium for representation.
• The Five Senses — This piece was one of two pieces unveiled at Brock University in May 2014. It used protein data as the basis for algorithmic visual art and music pieces.
• Emergence — This piece was also unveiled in May 2014, and used text data from The Bible as the basis for music and art pieces.
