What is an artist without the public? We create for audience acceptance, thrive on the interaction between our creation, and how you receive it. We increase our creative output because of the allure of sharing. Packed exhibits are our dream. They signal success. In the midst of a world-wide pandemic, however, a packed exhibit is an intimate dance with a life and death health threat.
We now know that to mitigate the potential deathly consequences of the Corona Virus (COVID-19) we have to, “Shelter in place.” Will we ever return to crowded venues? Will widespread immunization become available? What will happen to our exhibition spaces? How will museums attract people to come back? How will museums and exhibition spaces reopen and remain open? In this Covid world, with an absent public, what can we do? One choice. Invent.

A section from that book, on the Pyramids, was presented in readable content, amplified with a 3D model brought to life in an Augmented Reality walk-through of a 15 x 30-foot chamber inside the pyramid. The audience experience of actually being in and part of the book was reported to be “mind-boggling”.
