AVICOM FAIMP 2.0 Award - ColourMirror


The digital installation, ColourMirror made by MOME TechLab has won bronze award in the category Interactive Multimedia at  AVICOM FAIMP 2.0. The announcement about the award given by ICOM (International Council of Museums) was made at the MUZEUM@DIGIT conference. ColourMirror is an accompanying project to the exhibition In the Mood for Colours at the Museum of Applied Arts, Budapest, developed by the Creative Technology Lab at the Moholy-Nagy University of Art and Design, Budapest.


The interactive installation is a fun way of matching up visitors’ own colour schemes with the spectacular colours of the exhibits. The digital ColourMirror reflects how colourfully visitors are dressed. The Mirror scans your clothes and produces the matching colour palette. Then it finds the object in the exhibition with the most similar colours, and assembles a picture that you can send to yourself. It also collates data from other visitors to produce visualizations showing the colours most typical of the public during a particular period, and who was the most colourful visitor.


Many questions find answers through the use of the ColourMirror. Can we detect a warm sunny day from the colour of people’s clothes? Is there a difference in the colour palettes of tall people (mainly men) and short people (women and children)? Will visitors start to dress more colourfully so as to match with interesting exhibits? Will the exhibition have a long-term effect on what colours people prefer to dress in? The exhibition can still be visited in the first half of 2017.

Luther's Legacy
Digital Installations in the Lutheran Museum
The renewed Lutheran Museum was opened on November 11 at Deák Square. The TechLab Fellows collective have made six digital installations and an animation film for the permanent exhibition „Luther's Legacy”.
The digital installations of the exhibition
The Testament of Luther
This is the main digital installation exhibiting the testament of Luther, a document with international importance. Visitors can get to know information on the genre, history and witnesses of the testament, Martin Luther and his family in an interactive way with the help of thematic disks.
A Special Organ
The sounds of the organ can be tried out with the help of the digital application integrated in the body of the organ. One can choose from 12 pieces, they can be listened to in 10 registrations with the stop-keys placed on the keyboard of the restorated organ.
Up and Down
The application presents the ambiguous relationship of the church and the state.
Album Amicorum
The application represents the social network of illustrious Lutheran people, i.e. Lajos Kossuth, Sándor Petőfi , Mária Habsburg and Elemér Hankiss. It turns out where they travelled to, who they married, what friends they had and quotations can be read from them. The database can be searched in different categories (profession, fellows).

The application follows the changes of the Lutheran congregation in space and time.
In Memoriam Gábor Sztehlo and András Keken
The digital installation, which is hidden in different objects (can, book and suitcase) and can be found in the air-raid shelter under the building, recalls the era of WWII, the siege of Budapest on black and white pictures.
The Story of the House
The animation film brings to life the story of the building, which is a national monument , and the neighbouring church. The animations not lacking humour and irony have been made with papercut technique.
The installations have been realised with the professional leadership of Zsófia Ruttkay by the MOME TechLab Fellows collective: Klára Berczi, Zoltán Csík-Kovács, Bence Hajdu, Gáspár Hajdu, Dániel Huszár, Dániel Karasz, Ágoston Nagy, Ildikó Mezei, Bence Samu.

Luther’s Heritage


On Friday, November 11 opens the Lutheran Museum on Deák square. The collective of MOME TechLab Fellows has made six digital installations and one animation film for the permanent exhibition The Heritage of Luther. The highlight of it is the digital installation Luther’s Will, which focuses on the testament with international importance. The digital installations enable visitors to try out the sounds of an organ, to follow the changes of lutheran congregations in space and time and to get to know illustrious lutheran figures. The listed building which gives place to the museum comes to life on the frames of a silent animated film.
