Mission Dolores Digital Mural Project, San Francisco 2004

A projection onto the dome of the Mission Dolores Basilica exposed for the first time in over two hundred years imagery of two sacred hearts that had been hidden behind the Mission Dolores altar piece of 1796. Working with Presdio Trust Archaeologist, Eric Blind, we devised a system to systematically photograph the mural allowing it to be projected and displayed to the public for the first time.

With this project new media and digital technology gave us the opportunity to exhibit the past in a present context through the medium of projection. The computer lends itself to collecting historic imagery into a form that will allow wider access to the mural without adverse affect. The ability to publicly present this information via the internet or projection allows the public access to this valuable piece of native california history.
