Art Viewing Platform

Clean-slate HCI for art viewing of traditional media (painting, sculpture) with iPads, BTLE Beacons, projectors.

The goal was to show an artists’ entire collection of work (50+ years, thousands of works) in a single space compared to the typical gallery that only shows recent work, or a single series.

The platform developed makes all art interactive and gives the viewer something to do rather than just observe passively: they can explore the work, discover related works, studies, sketches, and biographical events in an intuitive manner.

I did the early R&D and iOS & Web prototypes, set scope of work / RFP, and then completed physical aspects of installation, while gradient labs leveraged their past museum work into crafting the final iOS application.
