Rnul interactive: Laterna Magica

The whizzkids of the Rotterdam initiative Rnul Interactive became fascinated by the collection of eighteenth and nineteenth century magic lanterns. They created a contemporary, interactive installation in the cabinets of the museum inspired by the ‘Laterna Magica’. Visitors influence the projected historical images directly with their own movements. This spellbinding effect gives these historical artefacts a whole new, current dimension.

During Work in Progress De Lakenhal invites contemporary artists to make a presentation based on museum artefacts, the building, or the history of the museum.
