Description

My project will allow users to see the world through Andy Warhol’s perspective, with the help of the Web. Andy Warhol, time and again, vehemently insisted that his works are not to be interpreted. He once said, "If you want to know all about Andy Warhol, just look at the surface of my paintings and films and me, and there I am. There’s nothing behind it." But there is something behind it. Regardless of how much he wanted us to just look at the surface and not behind or beyond the surface, we can see something. His works represent an era in American culture. Now, I will attempt to allow the users to utilize the medium that’s most representative of this era – the era of high-tech and information super highway – to get a glimpse of what it would have been like to see the world through Andy Warhol’s point of view.
