How can we convey the special qualities of a place?
 In each location around the world, inhabitants can play a special role in sharing unique local characteristics by publishing over the World Wide Web. Each individual can personally interpret the qualities, values and spaces that make it special. Capturing a place in digital media means that feelings, perceptions and memories can be combined with physical information to provide a vivid, accessible presentation. 

Students have been exploring how to express the essence of a place with digital media. Each portrays real or imaginary places from film, literature, art, architecture or memory. In short exercises,the students depict a specific place via writing, 3D modeling, rendering and animation. They publish their ongoing efforts through the class website.
