Audio Guide Special – Storylines / Teaser
A museum information system that enables a clear, unobstructed view of objects? One that even lets visitors discover the stories that link different exhibits and get a glimpse of the bigger picture? The “Audio Guide Special – Storylines,” developed by Serotonin for the exhibition “Myth of the Golden Triangle” in the Ethnologisches Museum, aims to be just that: a non-linear audio guide that enables personalized museum “walkabouts.” The sound art duo collaborated with the HTW Berlin - University of Applied Sciences to create a gesture-controlled headphone prototype. Its potential was tested in two workshops in Dahlem and then demonstrated in the museum as a 72-minute audio mash-up.
