A museum app that translates touch into music.
Touch Me dispels the sober atmosphere of art museums by allowing visitors to interact with the artwork. The lines in a Sol LeWitt wall drawing become the strings of a virtual instrument. A Sargent painting of girls sleeping on a lawn comes alive with the sounds of a dog sniffing through the grass, a breeze ruffling her dress...
Playing alongside other visitors enhances the soundscape and encourages interaction among users. The sensory experience varies by painting, and can only be unlocked by physically visiting the work, encouraging people to return and play at participating museums.
