Lisa Snyder (Associate Director of the Experiential Technologies Center, UCLA) specializes in the use of interactive virtual reality environments to study and teach about historic urban environments. For the Israel Antiquities Authority, she created a 3-D interactive digital reconstruction of the Temple Mount complex, and, more recently, she’s developed a computer simulation of the 1893 World’s Colombian Exposition. Based on extensive archaeological and historical research, her highly detailed computer reconstructions allow users to explore built environments that no longer exist.
