Old Fashioned Room at Zeeuws Museum


The Old Fashioned Room is a modern reconstruction of the style room which was exhibited in the late 60s at the Zeeuws Museum. The room has three interactive elements dealing about the questions what is real and originally old fashioned from Walcheren (a part of Zeeland). An interactive table, in which the visitor is asked for knowledge and experience regarding the collection items and to share it with the museum. A mirror which fits the clothes from the wardrobe virtually on the visitors. And a scale model of the room which record visitors. These recordings are projected in the room in a way like the droste effect in which the visitors get the feeling they are a part of a diorama.

How did this project use Max?

All the installations are made with Max. With analog video input of the cameras and digitizers the video image is used to interact with the visitors. The tracking of the interactive table is done with a kinect camera.
