This interdisciplinary digital humanities project combines computer science and historical-cultural studies to create a new exploratory visualization platform for analyzing physical settings of ancient Greek oratorical performance and for assessing their suitability as venues for speaking, seeing, and hearing. Digital reconstructions of ancient civic structures are presented in life-size 3D form using the large-format, head-tracked stereoscopic display at MSI; new algorithms are being developed to analyze and visualize the capacity of the venues, evaluate lighting and acoustics, simulate audience behavior, and appropriately convey uncertainty and multi-method data within the virtual reality reconstructions.
