About the virtual exhibition
The SO-CLOSE virtual exhibition is a participatory storytelling platform focusing on objects and their stories. It is a traditional storytelling concept translated into a digital format and enriched through user contribution features.
An engaging experience of discovery, learning and contributing, the virtual exhibition will support a narrative display section, that will set the story topic, and a catalogue of objects and stories with search features. The tool’s format aims to offer versatility to the cultural institutions and to promote a collaborative approach through crowdsourcing initiatives, empowering communities to share tangible and intangible elements of their origin or/and host country, photographs and 3D scanning of objects and artistic creations.
The participation of the final user will be a key element of the tool as it will offer the possibility to design and launch several crowdsourcing campaigns. The tool will call the final user to contribute with new materials, complementing the exhibition and the catalogue and enriching the narratives.
The tool will allow communities to share intangible and tangible elements, photographs, or 3D scans of objects in various display and narrative formats.Moreover, the collaborative narratives and collections also include:
- Customisable exhibitions
- Gallery with faceted search
- 3D objects integration
- User contribution features
The tool will allow communities to share intangible and tangible elements, photographs, 3D scans of objects, and artistic creations in selected locations.
