Alms Collection Book of the Bikur Cholim Society of Pápa

Interactive installation showing an ancient book in a transparent multitouch showcase for the Museum of Ethnography, Budapest

200 years old book augmented with interactive layer

Interactive installation for Museum of Ethnography, Budapest. The task was to create a digital version of an old book undesirable to be touched by visitors. So we have chosen a transparent multi-touch display which leaves the possibility to watch the original book through the screen while interacting with the digital version of the book.

Collection of promisory notes

The book was originally property of a jewish community in Pápa, Hungary, served as a container of promissory notes indicating the amounts of money individual members had offered. Such notes were used because alms were given on the Sabbath, when the handling of money was forbidden.
