CLIENT: Kunstmuseum Bonn
Because of the video lounge, the video archive of the art museum is now accessible for individual use by visitors to the Kunstmuseum in Bonn. 235 MEDIA developed a software and a user interface that makes possible both a simple selection from the catalog and the subsequent presentation of the video work.
The video lounge is embedded in a walk-in installation by the artist Stefan Eberstad. From the archive, which is characterised in particular by the extensive video collection of Ingrid Oppenheim, the visitor can, at two stations and with the help of a trackball, select a title from a clearly designed menu and have it played either on a monitor or as a projection. The technology is incorporated into the sculpture, which simultaneously serves as a seat.
