The exhibition "Urban Gardening. An exhibition for people with or without green fingers" addresses the increase in popularity of urban gardening. In recent years a great many urban gardening projects have sprung up like mushrooms. Allotment gardens are in fashion and even the smallest balconies are being covered with plants.
A media guide takes the visitors through a diverse audio walking tour through the exhibition. Four enthusiastic urban gardeners and balcony growers talk about their experiences with giant pumpkins and monks cress. If you input the numbers indicated at the respective exhibition stations the interviews are being called up. People with impaired hearing can additionally read the transcripts of the texts. For children from 5 years up there is an adventurous quiz tour with additional images and texts on their media guides. They can answer questions and solve the puzzle on a questionnaire. With that said the media guide is designed in a multifunctional and userfriendly way, and it gets children and adults alike captivated by the subject of the exhibition.
Tweaklab designed and implemented the media guide. What makes this device really special is the fact that, after a training given by Tweaklab, the museum team themselves can input content via a communication platform and directly transfer the data onto the guide. Therefore the handling is very simple and cost efficient. Acoustiguide programmed the app. Tweaklab, in cooperation with Optical Pain, developed and implemented the lightweight and practical case of the guide. Moreover, it will be possible in the near future to download the data quickly and wirelessly without additional numerical input through the media guide via NFC (Near Field Communication).
Duration of the exhibition: 08.05.–02.11.2014
