The Interactive Table
The installation includes a table, the upper surface of which contains a rear-projection screen, a series of figurines representing different eras in the history of Naples (ancient Greece, Roman times, Middle Ages, etc.) and an external monitor in which they are displayed the contents. Placing it on one of the sensitive areas on the map, indicated by areas of different colors, contents relating to the area at that time are displayed on the external monitor.
This, like other installations, was created for the International Culture Forum in Monterrey, Mexico: to see the photos click here
The installation consists of a telescope mounted on a rotating base, which contains a 10 “LCD screen and a video projector.
A video of Naples can be seen through the telescope, taken from sunrise to sunset by a special video camera with a 360 ° lens.
The shot is visible through the eyepiece of the telescope on the LCD screen and is simultaneously projected from the other end onto a cylindrical screen.
Rotating the telescope on the base rotates a small portion of the shot allowing viewing in any direction.
The system is made up of a physical book (e.g. with an approximate size of 100 × 50 cm), open on two blank pages, and a video projector aimed at the book that projects the contents of the pages (which includes a video).
By touching the book with one hand in a horizontal movement, the pages are “flipped” to the right or left, depending on the direction of movement.
Multimedia systems made with real frames mounted on televisions showing films on the life of painters.
The system, through an interface with simple buttons, allows you to choose the movie.
Using acoustic bells, multiple videos can be viewed simultaneously without disturbances.
When the system does not show video, the monitor shows high resolution pictures.
