The artist Seward Johnson (of the medical supplies company) once recreated several impressionist’s paintings using real life statues. Each 3D scene was in a separate room decorated to imitate the original painting, and viewers could walk into the various rooms. But they didn’t know that there were closed circuit cameras that were connected to monitors on walls elsewhere in the showplace where others could watch the effect of real people wandering through a famous painting. It was a fun exhibition to experience.
