Sound and Vision Experience

The project

This unique and interactive exhibition presents more than 700.000 hours of radio, television, film and music archives from The Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision. The route goes through 180 exhibitions that can be changed by visitors and through fifteen pavilions from which each is created with different atmosphere, character and create different experiences.


For the exhibition area of the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision in Hilversum, an interactive media experience was the logical choice. The visitors activate the various sections within the exhibition themselves using an electronic ring. The physical way of “zapping” sets in train a whole gamut of moments from an audio-visual history of the Netherlands.

— Opening up archives has never before been such an interactive experience.
