Dutch Festival Uses RFID To Enable Artwork Tag Clouds
STRP festival combines RFID and social web features to blur the boundaries between gallery experience and online existence.
STRP Festival Eindhoven is breaking new ground for the use of RFID in museums and gallery spaces via it’s E-Sphere RFID initiative.
The E-Sphere takes several cues from web 2.0, such as canny integration of visitor’s Twitter and Facebook accounts and by allowing gallery guests to rate items via a limited budget of 25 “dashes” and RFID integrated wristbands. This latter feature aims to bring a ‘last.fm – alike’ recommendation engine experience to perusing the gallery, suggesting artworks to visit based on their RFID mediated likes and dislikes.
