CB&F has just completed a project in consultation with Museografica SC, to produce iOS based computer interactives for the Museo La Tallera Siqueiros in Cuernavaca, Mexico. The interactives have been deployed on Apple iPads running iOS. They help make available a large library of images and documents on the life of David Alfaro Siqueiros. The interactives are part of a new temporary exhibit at the museum in Cuernavaca housed in Siqueiros’ former workshop. They represent CB&F’s first multimedia work solely in the Spanish language, and our first museum interactives deployed on iOS.
iOS and iPads enabled the use of comparatively inexpensive hardware, with an interface and controls increasingly familiar to the museum going public. Content and programming were completed on a very short schedule. Plans are underway to debut a version of the interactive in the Apple iTunes App Store. Look for photos of the exhibit here, later this month.
