About the Cathedral

MatchstickCathedral is Anthony Masinton and sometimes other folks, depending on the project.  

Actual matchstick cathedrals are a phenomenon with a long and glorious history which mostly involves meticulous, beautiful (and sometimes pointless) creations made by a bloke in his shed at the bottom of the garden.

More about MatchstickCathedral

MatchstickCathedral specializes in digital humanities generally and archaeological/art historical visualization specifically.  We've built a lot of virtual cathedrals and churches too (it's one of our specialties - check out our Portfolio.)  We are also passionately interested in (and sometimes create) games, especially art games and games that deal with the past.  We collaborate mostly with higher education, heritage sites and museums, but like working with anyone with mutually-interesting ideas.  Finally, we consult at the grant-writing stage of projects, particularly on the technical elements.
