Ulm Stories – Voices of the Minster
Interactive Media Foundation
In the 14th century the citizens of Ulm had a vision of massive dimensions – the Ulm Minster, a cathedral 500 years in the making and today the highest steeple of the world.
Ulm Stories voices of the Minter is an audio installation featuring 12 audio sculptures based on and inspired by historical facts, art pieces and personal stories to embark on a journey back in time and experience the Minster from the inner perspective of its lively history.
For that purpose 60 iBeacons (bluetooth-controlled sensors) have been installed in the Minster tracking the audience while moving freely through the building and experience their personal and immersive journey, without being distracted by devices.
The project „Voices of the Minster“ is part of the wider project Ulm Stories which was created in the context of „Zukunftsstadt Ulm 2030“ city of the future initiative. Ulm Stories, integrating the VR Experience Ulm Stories / the dream of flying and the event Ulm Stories/ Resonanzen has been produced by the Interactive Media Foundation together with project partners who are leaders in their own field: Demodern, Miiqo Studios, Dorian Roy, Tom Kombüchen and wittmann/zeitblom & Liebert.
