Virtual showcase application

This scenario was developed in the San Telmo Museum, Donostia-San Sebastián, Spain for the “Ferrum” exhibition. This exhibition brought together ICTs, didactics and the diffusion of the cultural heritage of the region of Gipuzkoa (Spanish Basque country). It was based on two applications of new technologies: a Virtual Showcase reproducing six iron-made objects and a tactile screen for the observation of the painting “Pueblo de Ferrones” by Sert.

This mix of real artefacts with high-resolution virtual 3D images in the virtual showcase was part of the “Ferrum” exhibition, which showed the historical evolution of iron in the region of Gipuzkoa. Objects from different historical periods were the tools for the transmission of selected contents.

The overall objective of this scenario was the implementation of an innovative prototype based on Mixed Reality technologies for dissemination and education activities concerning Cultural Heritage in a user-friendly way for the visitor. This objective was also part of a more ambitious project orientated towards the redefinition of museums as perceived by the “New Museums” movement.
