Atlas digital guide: embedding the digital collections into the new Slovak National Gallery
During the peak of COVID in spring 2021, we began to ideate different layers of digital experience for the new Slovak National Gallery building. The main component was the Atlas digital guide, developed in-house as a custom-built product. After consulting with educators and curators, we identified the following objectives as priorities: transitioning interpretive wall labels into a digital format, allowing visitors to collect artworks within the app, and expanding upon the existing online collections and digital content. We created prototypes for the exhibitions in the old buildings, conducted user testing, and used the feedback to inform the design and development process.
