Interactive Arts

You may have seen news of the World Classic Interactive Arts Exhibition which opened in Beijing last week, but have you seen the video? It's gross! I tracked it down on CCTV 9. An appalling hi-tech cartoon of the Mona Lisa waves at you and chats about her married life. Characters in old-master paintings fidget and wriggle. Statues come to life. It took a South Korean gallery two years to make this ghastly show, combing 3D and holographic technology with sound identification software. Will the Chinese punters love it or hate it? Click the title link to see the video and draw your own conclusion. (Reject the language pack.)
