I am working on a project on Bill Riseman,
former director of Boston's Museum of Fine Arts.
I would appreciate any tips on where to find
information regarding his life and work.
Bill was an iconoclast visionary who in the 70s designed
the first recording studios for 24 channels and then envisioned
the concept of Multiplex cinemas. When everybody thought his career
was already consolidated he decided to explore new horizons and
became one of the top specialist in the applications of virtual reality to
architecture and archeology.
Almost a year ago Bill came to Brazil to show his virtual reconstruction
of the Egyptian fortress of Buhen, now under the waters of lake Nasser.
He fall into the sea and disappeared while he was photographing some
rocks in the beach-resort of Buzios.
Thanks in advance
