NIMk Planet M
Buro Duplex was approached to design an interface for browsing a part of the video art collection of the NIMk (Dutch Institute for Media Art). This collection was to be displayed/browsed in a mobile exhibition space, also realised by NIMk.
The Media Art Mobile (aka Planet M) was first used at the Todays Art Festival in The Hague. The collections made with the current browser are still being published online at planetm.nl
Initially we proposed to develop a custom controller, to introduce a playful and inviting element in browsing the database of video’s. Widescreens were rotated 90 degrees to create the ideal palette to browse and oversee your saved video collection (the end goal of the browser was to have visitors make their own minicollections and share these online). Below are some concept sketches.
