We were asked to make two interactive touchscreen installations for the permanent Ancient Egypt exhibit of the renovated and reopening Museum of Fine Arts, Budapest to engage visitors and help them learn more about the exhibit in a playful and intuitive manner.
This interactive artefact invites visitors to step through the daily temple ritual of the pharaoh based on the rock carvings from the Great Temple Of Amun-Re at Karnak. Ancient images, that show the various scenes of the ritual, unfold on a sandstone-like surface as visitors interact with them.
In this piece, visitors are presented with a personality quiz with questions in relation to the history and culture of Ancient Egypt. While, a relevant image and a brief but evocative background story accompany each question to set the tone, visitors go through the questions based on their personal preferences. After completing the quiz, visitors are presented with certain type of Egytian amulet, based on their choices in the quiz, which they can share with themselves or a friend as a high-quality poster via email.
