IBM: Big Blue goes to Beijing

In 2007, I consulted for IBM on a virtual heritage project it had initiated with Beijing's Palace Museum.

Based on the experience from my graduate design project, I helped articulate and craft some of the issues of virtual identity, transportation and virtual participation.
