Place-Hampi is a ground breaking new media art installation that elevates cultural heritage to a new level of experience. It is an embodied theatre of participation in the drama of Hindu mythology focused at the most significant archaeological, historical and sacred locations of the World Heritage site. Place-Hampi provides a framework for a new approach to the expression of the cultural experience, whose aesthetic and representational features gives a dramatic new appreciation of the many layered significations of such historical, archaeological, and architectural spaces.

B.K. Roberts, 1987
