Chambers of Wonder

Kunstmuseum, The Hague (NL)

A 3D game for – yep – teenagers. Together with the educational department of the Kunstmuseum The Hague we aimed to prove that teenagers want to visit museums. Or, actually, we wanted ‘infect’ this group with a love of art for the rest of their lives. That’s the idea behind Chambers of Wonder.

Everyone loves to play. And teenagers in particular

That’s why we created a 3D game set in a bright yellow labyrinth. Each with its own subject,  thirteen cabinets show a totally different, interactive world. The game showcases the museum’s own collection and at the same time you discover how you can shape the world around you, together and on your own.

Use all your senses

In one cabinet you dance the Victory Boogie Woogie together with Mondriaan. In another you can try on the museum’s entire fashion collection, starting from the 17th century to the present day. In the mirror room you can change the contours of your body with accessories and then strut the catwalk. In another investigation about The Hague School paintings you will see how they are constructed by zooming in and out, starting from the details and looking further out.

Getting lost is a good thing

‘The playing man and the palace with the 1000 rooms’ of Constant Nieuwenhuys is the inspiration for Chambers of Wonder. Wandering, getting lost, freedom, encounters, the infinite, the feeling that art can go in all directions. The labyrinth is a metaphor for what art could be.

An ever-growing universe

In the finals of the game you get to design your own digital Chamber of Wonder. This room can be uploaded to the Wonder World, an ever-growing universe of virtual Wonders and a spectacular audiovisual experience.

‘Wandering, getting lost, freedom, encounters, the infinite, the feeling that art can go in all directions. The labyrinth is a metaphor for what art could be.’
