SANTIAGO 1875

19th century carriages

The “Santiago 1875” project was born to rescue one of the museum’s main attractions, it’s carriage collection. Through the use of new technologies it becomes an indispensable tool to improve the visitor experience, allowing them to learn more, and enhancing the immediate enjoyment of what the museum can offer them. The project consists of a scale model of Santiago of the XIX and the use of video mapping. This technique allows changing the perception of space or three-dimensional objects, by means of a light projection of images generated on a computer arranged in a certain way that coincides with said object or space. The technology applied to museums has even changed the basic concept of these institutions where the motto was to see and now we can increasingly see examples where this “seeing” is replaced by “living.” Experiences lived in cultural institutions have a very positive impact on the way people see their own past and culture. Experiential learning is the key to obtaining the best results in the general assessment of museums and cultural heritage.

Project Financed by the National Fund for Cultural Development and the Arts, National Fondart, Call 2019.
