“He” is the result of a project in the course Prototyping mobile applications. Anna Palmer, Lisa Sundberg, Victor Winnhed and myself got the mission to get more people to visit the available art in Umeå. After a couple of brainstorming sessions we came up with “He” (He is a word used in the northern parts of Sweden, it translates to put or place).
The idea is that every month a new theme is presented, and everyone with this application snaps a photo with their interpretation of the theme. All the photos are uploaded to a showroom somewhere in Umeå (like the museum of arts) and is projected on a big screen.
Our goal was to welcome people who never visit art exhibitions by letting them contribute to the exhibition itself.
