Using 3D imaging, the 'Crossing Over' virtual exhibition demonstrates how 3D can enhance storytelling and highlight contemporary issues. 

The exhibition combines concepts of crossing over into the afterlife with the very relevant issues of the impact cultures may have on each other at points of interface.
