OUR POP UP INSTALLATIONS AT A GLANCE:
Digie is an interactive wall installation inviting visitors to explore the past and present of El Paso, Texas. Digie is the result of a museum’s ambitious vision of engaging the community of El Paso in the creation and dissemination of the city’s history.
The tangible interactive work table provides the visitor with a tactile, true-to-life introduction to the making of a lithograph and an engraving, using projections on tangible work tools on a wooden work table.
The JumpingJack installation is developed as part of Europeana Creative, a European project which enables and promotes greater re-use of digital cultural heritage resources by creative industries. It uses images of public domain artworks shared in Europeana 280, a collection which features more than 280 diverse and unique artworks from all EU Member States.
Mixoscope is a remix tool produced for The Royal Library. MIXOSCOPE lets users create their own remix of historic photos from the Danish colony in the West Indies in a 3D space. Users can change perspective, add colours, add different photos and write comments.
PLAY IT: THE CODE FOR CULTURE GAME STATION
With the Code for Culture initiative of the MFG Medien- und Filmgesellschaft Baden-Württemberg mbH, Serious Games have been developed to create a playful yet meaningful experience for cultural institutions.
Three of them will be presented at THE ARTS+ Pop-up Museum:
Master students of the University of Furtwangen from the subject area Game Design are developing a Jump `n` Run game for the Badisches Landesmuseum. During his hunt, a stone-age man collects objects to reach the next level in the game. There, he passes from past to future exhibitions.
Students from different faculties of the Stuttgart Media University are creating a visual novel telling game for the Linden Museum. In search of his roots, a Hawaiian man who emigrated to California travels through the eight main islands of Hawaii. He encounters numerous tourist clichés and has to solve challenging puzzles to complete his flower chain, the Lei.
A group of students from different universities in Baden-Württemberg are working on an exploratory art game for the Kunstmuseum Stuttgart. On a fascinating journey the protagonists are able to explore a unique space, which has been developed from the abstract figures of the Monturi series by famous painter Willi Baumeister.

Space & Time is an award-winning digital design studio based in Copenhagen, Denmark. We specialize in digital and spatial design solutions. We create original visual universes based on strong concepts, design, technology and scenography. Our past projects have included interactive installations, exhibits, scenography, title sequences, visuals and online tools for a long list of clients in Denmark and around the world.
Storypix gives an exhibition a reach beyond the traditional museum. It’s a personal experience that lets you get much closer to a painting or photo than a museum guard would ever allow. And with a voice-first platform, we want to give the works of art a soundtrack and a human voice; a story that you can share. We believe that the development of display technology surpassing the canvas will be an important form of art expression. Storypix wants to get into the forefront of this development.
