Applications

Scenarios in which we transfer knowledge about museum objects with the help of digital technology and use it to communicate with visitors are what we call “applications.” The focus of our work – and therefore the museum experience as well – is always a transfer of knowledge between museums, the objects exhibited in them, and museum visitors. Technology is secondary. To improve the interaction between the relevant applications and museum visitors, we develop our applications as part of an iterative process. In other words, we create different technological development phases such as concept studies and low- and high-fidelity prototypes in which the applications’ functions are tested and documented. The process facilitates ongoing evaluation and improvement. The knowledge we acquire is just as valuable to us as the applications themselves, which is why we make them available to other museums for reuse.
