Bob, I like the idea of art becoming digital or holographic in the future, but I feel like that could make some pieces really start to lose their touch. With all the technology being developed, I’m sure we’ll find better ways to be able to preserve them or recreate pieces so we can have them accessible in more places around the world. Maybe one day we’ll be able to develop something that’ll tell us the colors that were originally painted on some of the statues and structures found, to digitally recreate everything. Or, maybe we can learn to put some of these structures in virtual reality and offer that at some museums to take a virtual tour around the lands.
