One of the projects I was able to visit as part of my British Academy funded project on digital visualisation was the Virtual St Paul’s Cross project at North Caroline State University. Their work includes a detailed visual reconstruction of the outdoor preaching cross by the medieval cathedral, and an acoustic model of the churchyard as it may have sounded when John Donne preached there in 1622.

Here is Reading’s Dr Mary Morrissey, who helped advise the project, with their poster at our recent Digital Visualisation colloquium.

It’s been a pleasure to make contact with this project and I look forward to seeing their next developments.
