Based on the idea of using your body and the entire environment as an interface this work explores the graphic potential of gestural interfaces in museum context.
This project searches possibilities to give an easier access to information and navigation through the museum. Subject and object, analog and digital world as well as visitors themselves should interact with each other to foster a richer museum experience.
