September 30th, 2010 by NearInteraction

This September saw NearInteraction showcasing several technological pieces on behalf of the Ministry of Culture of Portugal at the technology fair “Portugal Tecnológico 2010″, the nation’s largest technology and innovation show, held at the Feira Internacional de Lisboa (FIL) exhibition centre.

Welcoming in the new wave…

Using a gesturally guided installation to showcase MatrizPix, an information system responsible for the management of images and archives of the Instituto dos Museus e da Conservação, was NearInteraction’s first choice to relay a physical exploring experience to the viewer whilst browsing the archive of digitalised files.

Posting the freedom of artistic creation…

Highlighting the works produced by the arts residencies represented by DGARTES, (a Direcção-Geral das Artes) NearInteraction’s object recognition installation reveals documentary style videos activated by postcards held up to the monitor.



Keeping touch with history…

NearInteraction created a multi-layered multi-touch table visually showcasing the processes that are represented by DGARQ, (a Direcção Geral de Arquivos) the coordinating body of the national archives which overlooks in all forms and mediums of archiving throughout the country. Focused on areas such as network and file systems, the safeguarding of assets, classifications, preservation of documents and the dissemination of information, this particular multi-touch table focused on the Torre de Tombo site.

By making use of interactive technology to relay a virtual experience to all the various aspects represented by the Ministry of Culture, NearInteraction’s portfolio of works exhibited at FIL, were accessible to both professionals and the public at large, allowing the Ministry of Culture to play a memorable part.
