If you didn't see the NY Times article about Isabel Chang's web project to mapping and documenting houses of worship in Chinatown, definitely check it out. And see the project itself - The Gods of Chinatown. Sponsored by the Tenement Museum, the site is a tour of different temples, but it's more than a tour. Chang share her journey (as she started going to temples when she was depressed), explains what certain things at shrines might mean and gives her experiences at the temples. Bonus for PC users: The downloadable lucky calendar in the lower left corner.

You can see other Digital Artist in Residence Projects at the Tenement Museum.
