The Many Voices of Saint Catarina of Pedemont

Description (in English): 

This work employs animation, sound, graphics, and navigation as semiotic components working together with words to create multiple interpretive layers focusing on the spiritual preactices of a fictional medieval mystic, Saint Caterina. As the different voices offer varying perspectives, the user is immersed in a richly imaged and layered topography where the church hierarchy, academic scholars, the mass of believerss, and the female saint contest for the meaning and significance of her mystical experiences
