Critical Visualization Studies

Oct 5, 2011

For the first Get Wired @ Lunch discussion, Mark would like to explore the implications of recent critical work in visual and media studies on our modeling and mapping endeavors. His hope is that we can begin a sustained dialogue about the (hopefully productive) tensions between critical work in visual studies and our practices of historical geospatial visualization. He’s selected two essays from a recent issue of Visual Studies to serve as a launching point for our discussion: The algorithmic turn: photosynth, augmented reality and the changing implications of the image by William Uricchio Geomedia: on location-based media, the changing…

The Cathedral in the DiVE: Animating Medieval Architecture

Jul 21, 2008

In 2007-2008, Duke senior Charles Sparkman created a 3D model of an imaginary French medieval cathedral for a Visual Studies Fellowship. As Sparkman explains in the video below, he began developing the project first in Caroline Bruzelius’ Gothic Cathedrals course. After his model was completed, it was animated with the help of Rachel Brady and presented in the DiVE in the summer of 2008. Projects like Charles Sparkman’s contributed to inspiration for creating the Wired! Lab.
