Maritime Archeology Experience Cylinder (ExCyl) installation at the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde. 2016

Since 2013, participants of the ExLab RUC team have developed a maritime archeology installation in close cooperation with the Maritime Archeology Experimentarium at the Viking Ship Museum in Roskilde.

A copy of the ExLab RUC Experience Cylinder’s (ExCyl) digital and physical architecture has been developed in support of the difficult task of communicating maritime archeology. Based on the ExCyl installation interactive underwater scenarios have been developed.

  • Underwater archeology is a science difficult to communicate in a museum setting and exhibition. The idea of the installation therefore is to inspire an underwater experience.

  • Several steps have been taken to develop the installation from raw canvas to the final interactive scenario in terms of technology as well as narrative and interaction.

  • The interactive installation traces the audience’s location in space and with this location as a starting point different media (picture, text, video etc.) are shown to be selected and experienced by the audience.

Interactive spaces, creativity, and project organized studies.

Space, movement and visualization are three keywords in a report concluding the pilot project RUC Digital Group Room (working title) from 2014-2016. The report “Interaktive grupperum: Kreativitet og kompleksitet i projektstudier,”  is written in Danish, but early in the project an English video was produced with the aim to visualize some of the thoughts and ideas of the project (see below).

A prototype of a RUC digital group room was developed in 2014 and it was discussed at workshops with university students from disciplines across faculties (computer science, performance design, communication studies, history, philosophy).

In the early video as mentioned above we imagined what a digital group room at Roskilde University might look like – yet changes have been the outcome of ongoing discussions with students. Even if produced at an early stage of the project the video still visualizes our early thoughts and ideas and some of these main ideas still hold true.

Thursday, May 22: ExLab meeting

 

This meeting is about our current projects: “Italian pictures”, “The gangway,” “Learning at RUC 21st century workshops,” and we will also discuss possible future projects in collaboration with Experimentarium, BiMus, Roskilde Museum, and DigHumLab.

We are still waiting with bated breath for the answer to our Marie Curie application.

Fernisering af Italienske Billeder på Roskilde Bibliotek, 8. maj kl. 16.

En digital skitsebog i overstørrelse med Bjørn Laursens spændende tegninger fra Italien vil være opstillet en månedstid på Roskilde Bibliotek. Formålet er bl.a. at få undersøgt robustheden af opstillingen og se hvordan denne formidlingsform fungerer i praksis et sted hvor der kommer mange forskellige mennesker. Men kom og kig, gerne til ferniseringen, hvor der vil være korte taler ved rektor Hanne Leth Andersen og fra CBIT Bjørn Laursen og Henning Christiansen – og der er reception bagefter!
