Seeing Through Light

Seeing Through Light is the Guggenheim Abud Dhabi's pre-opening exhibition, featuring 19 international artists which explore the theme of ‘light’ and its different nuances and elements. The artworks are presented in a variety of media and show light as a metaphor – manipulative and beautiful, as a form and as rhythm, designed to play with our perception.

Playing with Light

Antenna International is the world's leader in creating handheld audio, multimedia and virtual tours for museums, historic and cultural sites and tourist attractions. The greatly anticipated Guggenheim Abu Dhabi, part of Saadiyat Island’s cultural district, chose Antenna to develop their first exhibition's multimedia guide.

Four versions of the multimedia experience were created – one for adults and one for families, in English and Arabic. The applications have been designed for iPods and iPad Minis, which are available for visitors at the museum, and are also downloadable from the iTunes and Google Play stores for users to put on their own device.

The app incorporates video, audio and fifteen interactive activities. Theses games encourage visitors to further understand and interact with the artwork on display and explore the properties of light that the artists were exploiting.

I was responsible for the general app design and also helped creating the games concept. For the games design, I used different tool such as 3D and video to recreate the ambiance of some of the artworks.
