Snapchat ART is the newest way Snapchat plans to use its augmented reality technology, as TechCrunch reported. The project is kicking off with digital art from Jeff Koons (including his famous " Balloon Dog ") that will be “hidden” in various spots around the globe. When you open the app in an area that's tagged with one of the virtual art pieces, you'll see a special Lens option at the bottom of your phone screen. Viewing your surroundings through the augmented-reality filter will make it look like the sculpture is right in front of you.
Do not believe those who think this movie is about the "mystery" of the model, or Vermeer's sources of inspiration, or medieval gender roles, or whether the mother-in-law was the man in the family. A movie about those things would have been a bad movie. "Girl With a Pearl Earring" is about how they share a professional understanding that neither one has in any way with anyone else alive. I look at the painting and I realize that Griet is telling Vermeer, without using any words, "Well, if it were my painting, I'd have her stand like this."
