NY Public Library for the Performing Arts, Billy Rose Theater Division - 3D Visualization of Theatrical Lighting Designs

Initial planning and a feasibility study to determine how virtual simulation software could be re-purposed to create representations of historical theater designs based on archival sources.

To emulate theatrical lighting design in a web-based 3D visualization platform that would give humanities scholars a way to see the effects historical lighting designs were meant to create. More specifically, NEH funding would make possible a feasibility study for emulating lighting design using current web-based 3-D technology. Depending on the results of this study, the project team will determine the best way to move forward to build a robust tool for serving emulations of lighting designs in special collection reading rooms.
