Project Details

Layman's description

In a collaboration with the French artist Olivier Haberman ( in an exploratory research project that set as a goal the annotation of Olivier's paintings using RFID tags. Multimedia content (audio, sounds, texts), related with the theme of the painting and prepared by the artist himself, is delivered to NFC-enabled mobile phones that are proposed to the visitors in order to locate the "invisible" annotations. The RFID tags are hidden behind the painting. The system architecture also included a tool through which the artist can create and update the content all by himself. Two industrial partners, Hippocad and Greenwalk were also actively implicated in the project.
