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.
- A model of the planned maritime archeology exhibition at the museum:
- 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.
