[Orozco] Reconstructing The Orozco Murals
"Among the great works of Mexican artist Jose Clemente Orozco (1883-1949) are the powerful murals at Dartmouth College, Pomona College, and New School University. Beginning with a collection of photographs we have created a single distortion-free image mosaic of these murals. Combining these mosaics with a 3-D computer model, allows users an immersive, albeit virtual, experience of these beautiful works of art."
