Description of the project
Urban Mutations is an interactive exhibition, showcasing the evolution of cities. Through the dynamic portrayal of cities around the world, visitors are able to explore and anatomize the internal components that constitute a vibrant metropolis in today’s age. It also leads them to find out more about the unconventional and innovative ways cities are engaged in to tackle various urban challenges.
GUI and TUI interfaces are mixed. The exhibition has different stations where you can find a bookshelf with books (completely analogue), stations with videos and audio (digital) and interactive tables that mix objects with digital projections.
