Jeffrey Yoo Warren – an artist, community scientist, illustrator, and researcher – presents his project, Seeing Providence Chinatown, a virtual reconstruction of the since-disappeared Chinatown in Providence. To recreate this space, Yoo Warren examined archival photographs, built 3D architectural models of the streetscape, and designed a virtual environment. In doing so, Yoo Warren reclaims a forgotten episode in Asian American history, and establishes a new site for lived practices and ancestral knowledge.

Yoo Warren was recently named the Library of Congress 2023 Innovator in Residence.

Museumverse, funded by a Humanities Council Flash Grant, is dedicated to exploring and utilizing emerging virtual and digital technologies in humanities research, education, and curatorial strategies.
