LOOKING AT ART
… can sometimes feel like window shopping – you see, but don’t truly understand. Who’s the artist and what were they feeling when they painted this picture? What was their earlier work like, how did it influence this piece?
That’s why we used iBeacon technology to explore a brand new way of experiencing art!
ART + iBEACONS = ART BEEKN
In October 2014 we launched ART BEEKN, the very first iBeacon Art Gallery in the city of Cologne, the official art capital of Germany.
Visitor’s smartphones are pinged with information about the exhibits as the visitor approaches. Specific content and videos collated for each piece in the gallery are pushed to the screen of any passing mobile device.
