Unique exploration of the Dutch Sound and Vision Museum.
Hilversum, The Netherlands
Hilversum is the media city of the Netherlands. In 1996, a national institute was founded to make the audio-visual heritage available, and to conserve it: Sound and Vision. In 2006, Sound and Vision moved to a new, colourful building. The new building included an exhibition on Dutch radio and television to increase the reach of the audio-visual collections and to serve a larger crowd such as schools, universities and the larger public.
NorthernLight designed and developed the interactive multimedia exhibition for the institute of sound and vision’s Media Experience. This museum is one of the most important cultural projects from by the Dutch government. Each of the fifteen pavilions is a world of its own in size, atmosphere and experience. With a special ring of Radio-frequency identification (RFID) technology, visitors can access 162 exhibits and interesting archives. The experience offers more than the magic of stardom or glimpses behind the scenes, it shows of the purpose of the magic: the role of media in the world and the importance of media in our lives.
