Interactive aquarium in Dordrechts museum at the exhibition “Beet!”

Beet shows more than 175 different works on the theme of fish, on loan from numerous leading museums. An interactive layer decorates the passage at the exhibition “Beet!” of the Dordrechts Museum.

Interactive projection with fish

A fish is not always what it seems. Fish can have an erotic charge in art, oysters are still known as aphrodisiac. Fish are also common in Biblical stories and are an important evangelical symbol. Fishing has always been important in prints, seasons, but also for Dutch prosperity..

For the entire family

If we let go of all seriousness, fortunately there is also room for fun with, among other things, this interactive projection. Children can creatively color in pictures of fish, scan them and like magic the fish will appear animated in the projection. They then happily swim around among all the other small works of art.

The Dordrechts Museum shows the cream of the crop in the field of fish in art. For the first time, an exhibition shows how much fish has enriched Dutch art and culture. In Beet! the versatility of the fish and its significance in Dutch and Flemish visual culture is discussed and presented.


Interactive Digital Aquarium for Museum Dordrecht

For the Museum of Dordrecht we produced this digital interactive aquarium. Kids (aren’t we all) can design and color their own fish on paper, scan it and let it swim with 25 other drawings.
