ClientARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum www.aros.dk
In February 2009, Aarhus Kunstmuseum ARoS opened an exhibition of digital art with the title Enter Action - Digital Art now. Our task was to design and implement a website that could provide information about the exhibition and its installations. We developed a concept in which the content is placed on an image or map, which in principle allows for arbitrarily large websites without deep hierarchies. The implementation is generic and allows you to quickly change the graphical presentation and content.
The background is a 3D collage visualising urban spaces and networks. Content is positioned by means of pictograms representing the various installations and pieces of the exhibition. These pictograms are repeated in the exhibition catalogue and also at the exhibition where each installation is presented with a short text and a red/white pictogram. By clicking on the pictograms on the website the user is presented with a number of content objects presenting text, images and video.
TOUCH SCREEN INSTALLATION
The website was also available at the exhibition as an interactive installation based on a 46" touchscreen. The content could be navigated by dragging the entire background map or by using a mini map or through a series of text links in the page bottom to increase the usability for users not accustomed to alternative ways of navigation.
