Art Project

I've been having a look at Google's lastest gizmo - the Art Project. It's fun (when it's working) and looks to be a handy way of taking a close-up gander at individual paintings (a useful adjunct to The Dabbler's National Treasures?), but the Explore the Museum feature is - like most virtual tours - rather disturbing, especially the up-down arrows that enable you to examine the floor and ceiling (you could simulate falling to the floor in a fit of Stendhal Syndrome). Of course it might be useful if you're planning a spectacular art gallery heist...

  1. I just fell out the window at MoMA and landed in 54th Street. Couldn't get back in, it was most disconcerting.
