Justin Underhill is a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Digital Humanities at UC Berkeley. He earned his PhD in Art History from Berkeley, completing a dissertation, “World Art and the Illumination of Virtual Space,” that uses advanced software to reconstruct the architectural contexts in which works of art were displayed. Such research explores the relation between pictures and the lighting of the space in which they were originally viewed. Underhill continued this work in his prior appointment as a Mellon Postdoctoral Fellow in the Digital Humanities at the University of Southern California. Presently, among other projects, he is developing art.rip, a site dedicated to digital capture, forensic visualization, and the history of art.
