Great Works


Business Proposition:

In the name of the public good (and positive public opinion), encourage corporations to invest time / money / knowhow to document & digitize the great works of enlightened civilization. Capture in excruciating detail the appearance, composition, and aesthetic of art, architecture, and music. Scan the Mona Lisa at 16000 dpi, map topographic features to electron-sized tolerance, archive the chemical composition of paint, etc.

Make data available free to the public for perpetual study & scrutiny. Capture enough data to recreate in virtual environment for eternal appreciation (as technology becomes available). The Microsoft Great Works Initiative. The Perpetual Gallery. The Achievement Archive.
