Inside the 360 recreation of the Titanic

105 years ago on April 15th, the Titanic sank to the bottom of the Atlantic ocean after it collided with an unseen iceburg. The fascination with the event is still strong to this day, thanks to its historical significance and the fictional love story of Jack and Rose in the motion picture 'Titanic'. While most people will never get to glimpse the ship wreck in person, artist Yadegar Asisi's latest installation gives history buffs, art lovers, and movie goers the chance to plunge to the bottom of the ocean without any scuba gear.
