Project Description

Multimedia Installations Accessible for People with Disabilities

The National Museum of Arts of Romania. 2013

The National Museum of Arts of Romania invited KOTKI visuals for the realisation of two multimedia products, as part of the Project “ARTouch” initiated by MNAR & Orange Foundation.
“ARTouch/Touch Art” project aims to make the European Art Gallery’ collection, more accessible for people with visual, speech and hearing disabilities.

The interactive applications are dedicated to the paintings “Gate” (Saint-Tropez) by Paul Signac and “St. Francis and St. Benedict listening to an Angel” by Guercino. The paintings are part of the European Art Gallery’ collection.

“The Sound of Colours” application sonifies the colours in the pointillist painting of Paul Signac, “Gate” (Saint-Tropez).
KOTKI visuals, together with the composer Victor Alexandru Coltea, transform colours and forms into sounds and musical compositions.

The application dedicated to the painting “St. Francis and St. Benedict listening to an Angel” by Giovanni Francesco Barbieri aka Guercino, presents a multimedia analysis of it: characteristics of the baroque composition, geometry, view point of the painter, light situations.
