Wonderful Knowledge

A digital exhibition on replication and early modern knowledge.

This Scalar website was the deliverable for one of three areas of my comprehensive exams in 2018. The thematic structure of my digital exhibition was inspired in-part by early modern practices of collecting and organizational methods recorded in early treatises.

Sacred Spatter: 

Mapping Cults of Christ’s Holy Blood in Late Medieval and Early Modern Europe

I created this project in the context of a seminar on Digital and the Humanities taught by Alison Langmead in 2015. I used Google Fusion Tables to facilitate mapping and visualization of regional relic type variation in and around Germany.

Accounting for the Arts:

Sculpture and Patronage at Versailles

by Clarisse Fava-Piz and Sarah Reiff Conell

This project was created in the context of a seminar with Christopher Drew Armstrong at the University of Pittsburgh in 2016. During this time, we explored the accounting book that recorded the expenses of the royal properties and visualized aspects of artistic patronage in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries.
