Within the scope of the project prepared by the Ministry of Culture and Tourism with the financial support of Association of Turkish Travel Agencies (TURSAB) and Ankara Development Agency Digital Book, Scenic Binoculars and Turkish Painters Information System applications have been developed for the State Art and Sculpture Museum in Ankara.
The Digital Book is a giant information kiosk measuring 1 by 1.5 meters, enriching the experience of the visitors. As they use hand gestures to flip the pages, the pictures come alive, and animations and videos enhance the delivery of key information. The installation provides information about the architecture and history of the museum building, and important art pieces exhibited in the museum.
Turkish Painters Information System provides an interactive sliding timeline application in which visitors can learn about the trends in Turkish Painting with explanation of many important painters and their masterpieces through history.
The Digital Binoculars application alters the user’s sense of time and space in unique fashion. As users look through the binoculars, they see the current environment as it was in a totally different era. Still or moving elements typical of the selected time appear in the viewer’s field of vision through the magic of 3D modeling.
