Museum Next Conference in Barcelona: presenting AR Lab's Van Gogh iPad project

Touch and Go(gh) Van Gogh Museum has an in-gallery experiment interactively showing technical research (e.g. overlays of x-ray) on fixed tablets next to the original paintings, made by the AR Lab of Royal Academy of Art, The Hague. This experiment is part of a larger strategy to engage audiences in and around the museum, using new media. Together with Fabrique, the museum is developing a tablet magazine where the research results can be accessed in an engaging and intuitive way. Read more about the MuseumNext Conference 2012 on their website. Jolein van Kregten, Van Gogh Museum and Ebelien Pondaag, Fabrique were involved in this project.
