Belle & Wissell designed a series of interactives for Kohl’s Art Generation Lab at the Milwaukee Art Museum. The interactives provide a behind-the-scenes look at how several key internal departments contribute to the museum experience.

The featured interactive is a multi-user touchtable that teaches about the various techniques used to conserve and restore a painting. Users explore the painting through multi-touch interactions using the same “virtual” tools as the conservator.

Belle & Wissell also designed the enclosure for the touchtable that features the real painting in close proximity to the digital one.

Companion interactives within the space include a set of “Story Player” touchscreen interactives, allowing visitors to browse and play hi-def videos to learn more about the museum’s various departments.
