Egyptian Tombs to the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
Greg Downing's talk will present details on recent projects that will vary from walking in an Egyptian Tomb, to playing with Icelandic Landscapes, to a virtual visit to the Smithsonian Museum. The presentation will include details on the production of the xRez Studio collaboration with Intel, V.A.L.I.S.

The experience merges photo real imagery with augmented elements that let viewers interact with and learn about the art, with three separate art pieces highlighted within the virtual museum.
