Deanna Shemek: “Digital Isabella d’Este: New Renaissance Navigations”

Cowell Conference Room | Free

Digital Isabella d’Este: New Renaissance Navigations
When you look at a piece of art in a museum do you ever wonder about the context? Where was the art originally hung? What did the room look like? Who were the people viewing the art? Did they listen to music as they viewed the art?
Please join us for Deanna Shemek’s Gary D. Licker Memorial Lecture as she discusses how she and her team are using Isabella d’Este’s personal correspondence to reconstruct Renaissance Italy. Using state of the art technology in virtual and augmented reality along with the work of numerous historians and researchers in the US and in Italy, Deanna’s work is bringing a whole new meaning to the term bringing history to life.


Intrigued? Here is a short video about the project:
