Open Books gradually reveals the thread that weaves itself through the pages. At the centre of the show, Photo Elysée and EPFL+ECAL Lab present an interactive, immersive device devoted to digital books. This experimental approach uses emerging technologies combined with design research to offer a new form of digital exhibition.
Based on the constitutive elements of the book such as the distribution of images and text, the dominant colours or the graphic design, this project aims to plunge the public into the heart of the construction of photographic books and enable them to discover by association other works from the museum’s collection. This research also explores how artificial intelligence can be used for cultural content rather than attempting to replace human beings.
