From the iPhone to the Met: Changing The Way We ‘See’ Art Online
Smartphone apps like Google Goggles have fundamentally changed the way we look at art, providing instant information about the work itself.
Go to the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, or the Getty Museum, and download the Google Goggles app for Android or iPhone. Snap a picture of the art that you’re looking at. Goggles will pull up the work of art’s history, bibliography of its creator and perhaps even a story of the collection from the Met’s mobile-optimized website.
