The solution was to present all the information about the paintings in an application. Visitors simply download the app into their smartphones, ask museum staff for a password and then use the virtual guide with all its audio and visual content. The password is required to ensure that only museum visitors can access all the information about Bak’s paintings. Other people can only try out a free trial of the app and see just a few of the paintings.
As Samuel Bak is still alive, he was asked to record the audio to accompany the video and provide commentary about his own work. All of this is loaded into the virtual guide application. The painter himself guides the visitors through his exhibition in an interactive and engaging way, so visitors can fully understand what Bak wanted to say through his paintings.
If the user wishes to, they can also read about the paintings – the text reflects what Samuel Bak talks about in the video, so everyone can access the information in their chosen medium.
The application was built using the Agile method, which ensured that the virtual guide was exactly how our client envisioned it.
In the end, the application was a virtual guide, where the painter himself guides the visitors through his exhibition. Not only this is more interactive and engaging, but the visitors can be sure they are shown what the author really wanted to say through his paintings.
