The Wall


The first thing you notice when  walking into Prof. Jean Li’s office is “the wall”. Reminiscent of an article I read a few years ago ( the above photo from “A Beautiful Mind” is one of many used in this this article from Esquire, it clearly indicates the “known knowns”.



Luckily German archeologist Hermann Ranke was extremely thorough with his sketches.  Below is  a top view of how he imagined the Temple would have looked when it was fully intact.

Using “the wall” as a reference, I’ve started to separate the  Heidelberg Museum photos into their different sections.

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.
