May 4 Mixed Reality Exhibition

Capstone | Fall 2019

Artifacts of May 4, 1970 – a survivor’s jacket, a gas mask and gun shell casing – tell a story that’s not often accessible to the general public.

In the capstone class, students brought these artifacts’ stories to life via the exhibit “May 4: Through the Looking Glass.” Throughout the Fall 2019 semester, students used photogrammetry – a technique that involves taking a number of overlapping photos and using a software to create three-dimensional images showing the object’s depth – to recreate digital displays of 10 artifacts of May 4, 1970.
