Vintage photography enhanced by digital technologies
Noterik’s Popup Museum enjoyed another day in the limelight at the Europeana Photography launch event, hosted at Museo della Grafica in Palazzo Lanfranchi in Pisa. The event welcomed both local and international attendees during the European Night of the Museums, giving a huge flux of visitors the opportunity to try our tool, as well as providing valuable feedback for Noterik’s ongoing development of this exciting new technology.
The MuPop multiscreen technology allows any smartphone or mobile device to interact with a screen and enjoy virtual exhibitions with captivating storytelling. It is a tool designed for museums and other cultural institutions who can easily create and showcase quick virtual exhibitions to advertise their collections, or to easily engage visitors with specific content. Digitised early photography is eminently suited to be used in virtual interactive exhibitions as was demonstrated in Pisa with the Man Meets World exhibition. Man Meets World basically consists of a slide show of selected photographs about travels and must-see places of the Belle Epoque, accompanied by audio fragments describing the narratives behind the images on screen, placing them in their historical context.
This event was part of Noterik’s ongoing collaboration with Europeana. Europeana.eu is a major resource available to the general public, enabling people to explore the digital resources of Europe’s galleries, museums, libraries, archives and audiovisual collections
