Lava Lab and Amsterdam Museum are building a new interactive storytelling application using i Beacons for the exhibition Portrait gallery of the Golden Age.
Bornmann, The Dylan: It will for sure develop further.Fresh Bed: Bornmann, The Dylan: Our guests are high end-travel guests who stay in hotel rooms approximately 150 nights a year.That’s nearly half of their time spent in hotel rooms.Many guests arrive early in the morning, and go straight to bed upon arrival, or just after having breakfast.Fresh Bed provides the right climate to help them adjust and fall immediately to sleep. We have adjusted the breakfast menu to the biorhythms and metabolisms of guests arriving from far distances for whom it might still be midnight according to their bodyclock.#Golden Age is part of the “Portrait gallery of the golden age” an exhibition combining thirty enormous 17th Century group portraits from the collections of the Amsterdam Museum and the Rijksmuseum brought together on display at Hermitage Amsterdam.
The project translates the stories behind networking and power in the 17th Century into a social media language of today in a way the young target audience can relate to.
The app #golden Age uses mobile technology and i Beacons (Bluetooth transmitters) that allow the public to interact and socialise with them.
Using social media messages the audience becomes friends with the Golden Age heroes.
This project is part of the “Portrait gallery of the golden age” an exhibition combining thirty enormous 17th Century group portraits from the collections of the Amsterdam Museum and the Rijksmuseum brought together for the first time and on display at Hermitage Amsterdam from the 29th of November 2014.
The exhibition shows regents, archers and merchants from all different classes, backgrounds and religions, standing shoulder to shoulder like brothers and revealing the past that defines the Dutch in the present way.
The project #golden Age represents new ways of bringing art history to life by creating a non-linear storytelling using interaction and a modern ‘social media’ language.
