The AKA Digital team has been working with The New York Botanical Garden to create an innovative, immersive mobile experience for their major 2017 exhibition, CHIHULY. We utilized state of the art 360 and location based technology to create a smart Interactive Guide that heightens the exhibit experience. Visitors can access the NYBG CHIHULY Interactive Guide via the web on smartphones for a guided experience prompted by location-based technology to learn more about each individual installation. As visitors approach the sculpture, the Interactive Guide triggers additional rich, contextual information about the artist, artwork or the process of its creation, as well as immersive 360-degree photography for select works. The NYBG CHIHULY Interactive Guide also allows visitors to create their own artwork by using customized photo filters inspired by NYBG’s landscape and share them via social media.
You can visit nybg.org to see the website and to get more information about the CHIHULY interactive experience.
