Discover how the complex of Angkor Wat might have operated almost a millennium ago. Created by SensiLab, our new digital exhibition at Caulfield Library simulates movement through time and reconstructed space, where the paths of thousands of animated ‘agents’ are tracked as they enter, exit and circulate within the temple enclosure. The time frame of the simulation is just 24 hours: a virtual day in the life of medieval Angkor Wat. Visit today and discover it for yourself.
Have your say and go into the draw for a chance to win $1000!
