Paul's Cross at the James B. Hunt Library

The Virtual Paul's Cross Project has been installed in the Teaching and Visualization Lab of the James B Hunt Library on NC State's Centennial Campus. 

This installation takes advantage of the technological resources installed in the Teaching and Visualization Lab, which include 10 projectors that together display a seamless 270 degree panoramic image and 21 speakers that provide an immersive surround sound experience.

The Installation was officially opened on November 5, 2013, the 391st anniversary of Donne's Gunpowder Day sermon, to the day of the month, the day of the week, and the hour of the day.

Joining us for the day were John Schofield (see above) and Matt Azevedo from the Production Team. John spoke at the Symposium we had in the afternoon, along with Tom Barrie from NC State, Anne MacNeil from UNC-Chapel Hill, and Heather Minor and Carol Symes from the University of Illinois.
