How would it feel to walk into a harem painted by Gerome? To switch place with the woman depicted in American Gothic by Grant Wood? To surf on the tsunami wave of Hokusai, or be massaged by the octopus depicted in his The Dream of the Fisherman’s Wife?

 

As we watch them, these wonderful works of art become alive in our imagination. Yet I had this annoying sensation to be only the spectator of something I could not experience first hand. 

An unbearable situation. I had to find a way in – and I did it! Will you join me?
