Dr. Gill receives NEH grant
Dr. Alyson A. Gill, Art History, recently received formal
notification from the National Endowment for the Humanities that a
collaborative project between ASU and Coastal Carolina University
has been funded through a new NEH initiative, the Digital Humanities
Start-up grant. The award is $30,000 and will fund the 18-month
collaboration, Ashes2Art: Virtual Reconstructions of Ancient
Monuments. An innovative interdisciplinary concept, Ashes2Art
combines art history, archaeology, graphic design, web design, 3-D
animation, and digital photography to recreate ancient sites and
monuments online. Faculty and students conduct focused research on
specific monuments, visit the sites, shoot high-resolution digital
panoramas, write essays summarizing scholarly opinions based on
published archaeological reports, and document those sources with
extended bibliographies. Immersive 3-D models are built and posted
online, utilizing many technologies. The NEH funding provides travel
funds for the project directors to go to Delphi, Greece in 2007 and
to several sites in Turkey in 2008. The funding also covers travel
to the Getty Institute to use the institute's library resources.
