Synopsis

Imagine you could paint one of Tom Thomson's most famous works, while brushing the shroud of history from his story... Painting The Myth, a new system for interactive biography, allows you to illustrate the life and times of artists, their work, their histories and their stories by moving through increasingly rich and detailed layers of their best known works. This unique digital storytelling experience merges form & content into one engaging look at the story behind the canvas, the secrets inside the history, and the artist in each of us. Painting The Myth provides access to rich cultural heritage through elegant and compelling interaction.
