For this concept we placed several Beacons at specific pieces of art in the Rijksmuseum. Beacons send a unique signal that the app will recognize. By using this app the visitors can receive the stories, written or as an audio fragment, which were placed at the piece of art they are standing in front of.
This adds a social aspect to the experience of a visit to the Rijksmuseum. Instead of static information, like the information on sings next to the artwork, the user can look at the art through the eyes of another visitor. They will no longer feel alone with their own thoughts and doubts, but be connected with others through stories. They also might get new insights and see things they had not seen before.
