Please join us for the opening reception of May 4: Through the Looking Glass, an immersive and interactive exhibition that seeks to open up new spaces for thinking and feeling the profound legacies of May 4, 1970. The project deploys 3D scanning technologies, immersive multi-channel video installation and augmented reality to offer viewers a different perspective from which to grapple with these tragic events. The project features virtual artifacts pertaining to May 4 and its aftermath, a 3D scan of the site where the shootings occurred, and excerpts from an audio interview with Alan Canfora, who survived the shootings. Through the Looking Glass was created by Assistant Professor Abraham Avnisan in collaboration with students in his Digital Sciences capstone course.
