In the Press

Here is a small excerpt from the news coverage of GuidiGO in the press and on the web:

November, 2017

  • The Know

    Using augmented reality, Clyfford Still Museum exhibit reveals paintings invisible to the naked eye
    “The renderings are terrific and do an effective job of presenting the work. Viewers can move about them like real paintings, getting close up or far away, and the surface textures — mounds of paint and scratches on canvas — can be seen and felt. The museum, wisely, treats these visions as real-life objects. It actually leaves large spaces on its walls blank, giving credibility to things that aren’t actually there.”
