CLOSER: Augmented Reality for innovative interaction techniquesCreated on 2012/3/22 | Update 2012/6/12 | 1243 reads
The goal of the CLOSER project is to bring audiovisual archives in a more direct relationship with the audience, using innovative interaction techniques like Augmented Reality.
Audiovisual cultural heritage collections nowadays are becoming accessible on a large scale through digital networks. Innovative ways of presentation and interaction can create an added value in disclosing these archives to the audience. CLOSER is a multidisciplinary research project, initiated by V2_ Institute for the Unstable Media and the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision.
CLOSER aims to design new ways of experiencing audiovisual databases. These new concepts will employ technologies that are already developed by V2_ and Sound and Vision as well as insights from the disciplines Augmented Reality, Semantic Web, Human Computer Interaction and Web Design. As a first step a multidisciplinary team of students will develop new concepts about interacting with audiovisual archives.
Bas Bergervoet, Kate Cunningham, Aestha van Dam, Shauna Jin and Connie Yeh were the five MA-students from different schools and universities who spent two months at V2_ researching and thinking about new ways of using an archive. How would shifting the context of an archive influence the ways users access an archive and participate into building a collection.
