Launching a Pilot Interactive On-Gallery and New Years Reception
As part of our preparations for the Keys to Rome exhibition (http://vimeo.com/75944494), we have developed a pilot interactive that we will share with you during the first Meetup of the new year.
The pilot interactive, called the Domus Project, aims to virtually contextualize objects from the collection of the Allard Pierson Museum. To do this, we have broken up the interactive into two parts. First, the visitor will use physical interaction to explore a virtual Roman house and collect 7 objects from the Allard Pierson Museum. After this, the visitor can explore the real museum objects in a nearby vitrine. Here, the visitor can use a touchscreen to access information about the objects that were found in the Roman house.
We would like to use this pilot interactive as a tool for discussing the challenges and opportunities associated with launching a pilot interactive on-gallery within a museum.
At the meetup we will also be joined by Dog Back Design Solutions, who will be giving a presentation. They will show a basic solution to identify museum objects and vitrines seamlessly fitting to the modern devices visitors use in daily life, like smart-phones and tablets. The main advantages are an improved information flow, tailored to the individual visitor. On the other hand the system offers ease of installation, operation, configuration and maintenance.
