The project «Alice and the Minautor» was developed in three days, during a hackathon in MAH (Museum of Art and History) of Geneva.
A hackathon is a sprint-like event gathering people from diverse backgrounds and making them collaborate intensively on a (tech) project.
The specific goal of this museomix hackathon was to dust off museums, and to give visitors the opportunity to discover History and objects in another way.
Within a small multidisciplinary team, we discussed topics such as objects values, random paths, and change of viewpoints. In the end we designed a subversive and poetic journey, supported by an app and a card game. Hypertextualisation, absurdity and suggestions for new museum routes – both personal and nonlinear – constituted the core of our approach.
Our project was then selected to be presented at LIFT-conference-Geneva 2015
