Stedelijk Museum

The Stedelijk museum created a plan to provide the public with a knowledge platform for modern and contemporary art within Amsterdam, in which it can manage and present its collection in an innovative way. Eventually they want to implement an infrastructure where locative media, augmented reality and user generated content can be combined. It will be possible for every user to get an enriched experience viewing art. The Stedelijk can show exclusive art works or create art tours and virtual expositions in the city.
This MediaLAB Amsterdam project was a pioneer designing and creating an augmented reality exhibition of virtual sculptures.

Projection Infinity

This is the fourth urban screens project developed by MediaLAB Amsterdam. With Gijs Gootjes as a project manager and Jan Scholte as creative producer, a small group of students designed an interactive projection for the new Amstel campus of the Hogeschool van Amsterdam. The projection took place in February 2011 as part of the Students in Motion project, mixing self generated mapped animation content and outsourced small clips of video, the project also worked with audio, touchscreens and twitter.
It was developed in collaboration with technical partner Beam Systems and with creative studio Escapation.


Wereldomroep is a project that focuses on creating a transmedia storytelling platform. This concept is intended for expat children that move abroad together with their parents. Through a magazine and an interactive website, we help them with any potential problems they may encounter.

Working along with RNW, this project develops an online drama/web series aimed to an audience of expatriate children around the world. The main theme is be: what happens to you when you become an expat? The idea is to help RNW research what different media platforms can be used  to create interaction between expat children and the station, as well as researching the narrative possibilities of transmedia.
