VIRTUE (VIRTUal Exhibition hall) (Ongoing)

The digitization of museum exhibits has raised the question of how to make these objects accessible, particularly in light of the ever growing collections being available. The VIRTUE (VIRTUal Exhibition hall) project allows curators to easily set up virtual museum exhibitions of static and dynamic 2D (paintings, photographs, videos, etc.) and 3D artifacts. Visitors may navigate through the virtual rooms, inspect the artifacts and interact with them in novel ways.

An early prototype of the system was developed at the Open Cultural Data Hackathon 2018 and won the "Brand new" prize. The system has also been used very successfully at both the Museumsnacht and at Fantasy Basel 2019
