This is the excerpt for your very first post.


I’m new to blogging in general, so please keep that in mind as I find my sea legs over the next few posts.  I’m a Masters of Digital Media student at Ryerson University.  Under the supervision of Professor Michael Carter (Director, Industry Relations) and as a GA to Dr. Jean Li (Department of History), I will focus my Major Research Project on developing a digital reconstruction of the temple in el Hibeh, Egypt.  This 3D model and its surrounding area will be fully realised as a virtual reality experience, connecting present to the Third Intermediate Period (c. 1069-664 BCE) when the temple was built. Throughout this process, I will be open and transparent.  My hope is to elicit feedback, input, and know how from the archeology community through each stage.

I was immersed into the world of virtual archeology for my Masters Research Project at Ryerson University.  The focus of this project was the digital reconstruction of the el-Hibeh temple in Egypt.  After four months I believe I was able to demonstrate the potential this medium has to offer as a way of bridging the past and present. I'm currently visualizing the past, present, and future of a pre-contact indigenous community.
