Monticello Study

"I am as happy no where else and in no other society, and all my wishes end, where I hope my days will end, at Monticello."

Thomas Jefferson, 1787

The PHSCologram, "Monticello Study", depicts the private office suite of third U.S. President, Thomas Jefferson (1743–1826). The cabinet was part of Jefferson's private rooms, including a book room, greenhouse, and adjoining bedroom. The floor plan is based on Jefferson's architectural preference for octagonal shapes, and was used for reading, writing, architectural drafting and scientific observation. Notable furnishings include a reading and writing area, complete with a chair, tabletop and bookstand that all had revolving features, as well as a copying machine. The room contained a vast collection of scientific instruments, such as an orrery, microscope and telescope. Room dimensions: 18'x6"x11'x10' with a 10' ceiling. Research conducted by Monticello specialists indicates there is evidence that the room was originally wallpapered, today, however, it is painted oyster white.

Thomas Jefferson is the author of the Declaration of Independence and the Statute of Virginia for Religious Freedom and founder of the University of Virginia. As the third U.S. President, historian, philosopher, and plantation owner, he articulated the aspirations of a new America as no other individual of his era, and served his country for more than five decades. Thomas Jefferson remains an inspiration to us all, and Monticello, a significant part of American heritage.

Buffalo's 1901 Pan-American Exposition

"Buffalo's 1901 Pan-American Exposition 2001" is an immersive PHSCologram artwork produced by Debra Kolodczak, and an ensemble team at the Center for Computational Research and the Department of Media Study, at the University at Buffalo in New York, and Chicago-based collective (art)n

The PHSCologram (pronounced skol-o-gram) enables a unique time-based translation of combining more than 20 historic paintings within a virtual 3D environment to represent Buffalo's 1901 Pan-American Exposition. The work includes the Temple of Music, noted for the location where President William McKinley, the Twenty-Fifth President of the United States was assassinated. The Temple of Music building was extensively photographed using the era's latest black & white technology, but no records exist that accurately portray the exact colors of the environment. Referring to artist's renderings and written descriptions from 1901, the 3D rendered model of the Temple of Music provides a suggestive color representation based on scholarly research.

Le Basiliche di San Pietro External Façade

These images are part of the virtual reality application "Le Basiliche di San Pietro" developed by Infobyte Srl Rome, Italy in collaboration with the National Research Council (CNR), for ENEL S. p. A. The great Basilica is for the first time available for a virtual, breathtaking tour, inside and outside. The virtual tourist not only can freely walk through the church, as it was before its reconstruction, but can also "fly" and have a totally new vision of the inside marvels.
