"The Art of Deep Immersion. Konstantin Khudyakov" in the "Nagornaya" Gallery Automatic translate

With the help of a personal electronic device (smartphone, tablet), the viewer will be able to immerse himself in a hidden visual and animalistic resource of the work, as well as interactively navigate independently in the emerging 3-D scene, full of special effects, dynamics and sound.
The technology of added virtuality gives the picture completely new, previously impossible, qualities and properties.
