From the Developer

How do objects end up in a museum? Discover the answer to that question from the artworks themselves in this app from the J. Paul Getty Museum. The Life of Art app enables users to retrace the lives of a lidded bowl, a silver fountain, a side chair, and a wall light in the Getty’s collection by examining physical clues. The interactive app features stunning photography, animations, video, and 360 rotations that bring the rich biographies of these objects to life.

This app was created in conjunction with the 2012 exhibition The Life of Art: Context, Collecting, and Display at the Getty Center.

Winner, American Association of Museums Media & Technology MUSE Award, Applications & APIs, 2012
