Video Table Casa Padre Toledo
The interactive table is part of the re-inauguration exhibition of the Museum Casa Padre Toledo. Father Carlos Toledo lived in Tiradentes/MG and was a leader in a Brazilian separatist movement known as Inconfidência Mineira. Today his old house is part of cultural heritage of the city and is administered by the Rodrigo Mello Franco de Andrade foundation.
The goal of this installation is to show in a interesting way some of the great amount of information regarding the house and the way of life of the period. The installation is composed by a 6 LCDs display wall, which can be controlled by two touchscrens. The display wall is the primary screen for visualization, while the touch screens are used mainly for navigation and content selection.
All the data in this installation was organized into hotspots, which are points in a digital 3D representation of the house. When the user chooses a hotspot in the touchscreen, the main display will perform a flyby through a realtime 3D rendering of the house and stop at the desired hotspot. Then the required information will appear as video, image or text format.
The system supports up to two users simultaneously by using split screen. Sound content, however, is only played for the first video to be selected. I was responsible for the development coordination.
