Hiroshima Peace Conference
In winter of 2011, xRez partner Eric Hanson spoke at the Hiroshima Peace Museum at a conference on utilizing digital media toward peace education. Meeting with filmmaker Mr. Masaaki Tanabe and TBS producer Norico Wada on our prior involvement with the Hiroshima Reconstruction Project while there, Eric was provided warm and generous hospitality, being personally toured over several days to several deeply affecting historic sites surrounding this dark chapter of human history. A gigapixel image was taken from a balcony near the historic world war documentation shot, but with this building due for demolition, this capture may prove valuable over time. The use of computer graphics to further educate and deepen one’s insight and perception of history is certainly of immeasurable value, and we are honored to be associated with this cause and individuals.
