A Talking Mona Lisa!
Everyone knows this image, right? The iconic, ever-so-slightly smiling portrait of Mona Lisa – and now it talks….
Let me set this hilarious story up…
Paris is a city full of rich history and art – several of the greatest musums in the world are here, such as the Musee d”orsay, the Picasso Museum, and of course, the Louvre…you can wander for days and never see it all….
I used the panorama effect on my iPhone to capture Alex on both sides of one of the Louvre’s main halls, and then we headed to see the incredible work of art, the Mona Lisa…
One of the more annoying aspects of the exhibit now isn’t the crowds, which are to be expected – instead, most people don’t even get up close to admire the work of art; instead, the Mona Lisa is reduced to a backdrop for this…
The “Mona Lisa” Selfie!
Yes, this iconic work of art is reduced to a selfie, so I guess it’s no surprise that she has gone INTERACTIVE!
Yes, on our most recent trip to Paris, this iconic portrait was turned into interactive art!
Alex and I were walking by the Center Georges Pompidou, which a a modernistic museum in the Les Halles district of the city, when we came upon this:
Behold the “Talking” Mona Lisa!
In the courtyard outside the Pompidou in Les Halles, we cam across this huge outdoor exhibit – with a Mona Lisa that did more than stare back!
Here is the video – designed to respond to prompts from the crowd. Wait until you see what this Mona Lisa can do!
This was all part of a car company’s promotional scheme, located outside the modern George Pompidieu museum…and it was an eye opener for sure! The final touch was this “happy” response from Mona herself:
Well, what do you think about this interactive work of art?
