Jonathan Amakawa

Fitchburg State University
Assistant Professor
Boston, USA
I am a 3D artist who specializes in creating interactive museum exhibits and educational media. My work integrates sculpture, drawing, architecture and animation in a virtual environment. I have developed virtual reality-based history exhibits on Negro League baseball and the Underground Railroad for the Senator John Heinz History Center in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Currently I am developing Augmented Reality Apps for the US National Park Service's Lincoln Home National Historic Landmark and the New Philadelphia National Historic Landmark.

My interests include exploring the artistic possibilities for video game media, especially in presenting historical subject matter. In addition to creating virtual reality art pieces, I am an Assistant Professor in Game Design at Fitchburg State University.
