Following in the footsteps of the international award winning GibsonWalls experience for the City of Copenhagen, the El Paso Museum of History’s 11 meter (36ft) touchscreen allows multiple visitors to playfully explore El Paso’s culture and heritage at the touch of a finger.
Through a bilingual (English and Spanish) interface, visitors experience a 3D graphic world crafted out of the museum’s image collection material. Visitors are also encouraged to upload their own contributions to the Wall – images of their life, family, history and culture, ensuring a fresh content experience and a growing community collection.
Built into the exterior entrance to the Museum of History the installation is open beyond normal opening hours. A companion ‘Mini-Digie’ 75” screen unit takes the museum into the community, visiting schools and public events.
