A week into doing some proper research (the thing we always say we’ll do but then end up wrestling bloomers onto malfunctioning avatars or rushing around following leads for funding) and I’ve already found some excellent stuff to help us think about the role of visualisation and, more importantly the population of visualisation by historical characters. I decided to look into how these issues have been dealt with in ‘real life’ heritage scenarios and found the work done by the Performance, Learning and Heritage project (funded by the AHRC) at the University of Manchester incredibly useful in exploring atrtitudes towards the role of performance (in its widest sense) in museums and heritage sites, bringing up some very useful comparitive material for our use of ‘bot characters and, more importantly, showing that the issues we’ve been wanting to tackle are very prevalent in the wider arts and humanities community.
