The Art Museum with TV’s?

Samsung Exhibition

Samsung is sponsoring an exhibition at Seoul Korea’s Hangaram Museum where you can see major works of art including Vincent Van Gogh’s Starry Night during their Rêve et Réalité (Dream and Reality) exhibition running from now through September.

Four 46″ LED TV’s are on the wall showing these works of art. A “Digital Smart Docent” at the beginning of the exhibition helps museum attendees learn about the paintings via videos and text on the Samsung Smart TV.

What do you think? Is this the Museum of Tomorrow? A museum cannot get the actual work of art to display so they use a High Definition television screen to display the work of art. While you’re at it, you can provide zoom-in capabilities to see the fine details.

I’m not entirely sure how I feel about it. I think many would believe there is nothing like viewing the real thing in person, but how often can you make it to Paris to see the Mona Lisa?
