At Lunch

I'll be gone for a week and probably posting less frequently, because I will be attending the Joint International Conference on CyberGames and Interactive Entertainment in Australia. I'll be talking about videogames and virtual reality simulations that recreate the landscape, built environment, and civilian population of Iraq for training and rehabilitating U.S. soldiers, such as Tactical Iraqi and Virtual Iraq. I will be connecting these contemporary software projects to a longer rhetorical history of the Ars Memoria or Art of Memory, which uses specific spatial techniques to recall material to memory such as the method of loci or the Palace of Memory.
