NuForm, 2021–2022

The prototypes emerging from NuForm seek to challenge, overcome and erase the boundaries that divide digital and physical museum experiences.

NuForm is investigating the use of innovative technology that will enable people to come together simultaneously in museum spaces – in person and virtually. Together with the Museum für Naturkunde, we have spent two years experimenting in this interdisciplinary research project. Prototypical solutions for hybrid museum visits are the result.

We have developed approaches that intertwine digital and physical aspects instead of seeing them as parallel realities. Our hybrid communication and interaction concepts allow visitors to get involved, to communicate with each other and to discuss the exhibits – whether they are wandering through the museum building or sitting at home on their computer.
