Symposium | Icons of Sound: Voice, Architecture, Imagination
Sat, Nov 5, 9:00am-5:00pm
Oshman Hall, McMurtry Building

The animation of medieval images and spaces comes to life through the agency of voice, light, incense, and movement. The confluence of such triggers can give rise to a sensually saturated phenomenon, which can in turn lead to the disintegration of the divide between real and oneiric, terrestrial and celestial. This symposium explores three topics: first, animation as a temporal phenomenon in medieval art; second, the role of digital technology in staging an encounter with the past; and third, the role of modern performance and the aesthetic act in shaping a direction in museum display practices, cultural heritage, and historical preservation.
