La Rioja Tierra Abierta: Sin-Penance-Forgiveness. Temporary Exhibition.
Santo Domingo de la Calzada. La Rioja, Spain


Multimedia system to explain the altarpiece of the Cathedral of Santo Domingo de la Calzada, one of the most important works of the sculptor Damià Forment


It’s a 10 minutes show, using video projection on the same altar and surround audio.
The altarpiece comes to life and explains itself: the compositional schemes, floors and streets, the distribution issue, the sense of its origin and composition.


Indissoluble also made an multi-touch application, built inside of a cabinet, to explore the altarpiece via zooms up to real size scale. At each zoom level, progressively detailed information appears about the most significant elements that compose it.
