Immerse yourself inside a 16th century gothic prayer bead that fits inside the palm of your hand and explore the intricate carvings made visible through the power of micro-computed tomography (CT scanning) and virtual reality. Produced by the Canadian Film Centre’s Media Lab (CFC Media Lab) and Seneca College School of Creative Arts and Animation, this collaboration between AGO Conservator Lisa Ellis, and Interactive Artist/Designer Priam Givord marks the first time anyone will be able to move through, around and within one of these small wonders.
