MiD at Museum and the Web


We, MiD, were offered the chance to display some of our work at the Museum and the Web reception a few weeks ago. Museum and the Web is a conference to showcase emerging technologies and their use in the museum context. We brought four projects to demonstrate and they were all a hit. We were told this was the best part of the whole conference. The response was so well, in fact, that some of the projects are pursuing further development with museums.

The projects included the Pixel, Collabritique, Art Amplified, Electrofolksonogram. Pixel allows you to see through someone else’s eyes. In this way it exposes what you are looking at to someone else. Creating a critical dialogue around the shared visual experience. Collabritique is an interactive environment where users can begin a conversation about an art piece. Art Amplified makes use of augmented reality, specifically the Layar app, to provide access to relevant contextual information about a given art piece. Finally, the Electrofolksonogram uses EEG technology to compare your brain waves and to your personal preferences to provide suggestions on other works that may be of interest to you.
