Art Crimes: An Investigation in Understanding Art
In this paper, I describe a few prototypes that were created with the hope of building a vehicle for viewing and understanding Himalayan art in a culturally sensitive and accessible manner.My initial experimentation that is documented within this paper demonstrates an exploration into presenting an unique viewing experience of art for a fairly young user group. These projects could eventually be combined with educational lesson plans, facilitate a dialogue for the topic of art loss on museum or industry websites, or even stand as fun games to play on there own. I strongly believe that this kind of investigation of informal education is crucial to engraining the concepts of history, culture and art into the minds of younger-aged viewers, as well as to keep the manner relevant and accessible.
