|Gáspár Károlyi Museum - Bible Exhibition|
The installations of the Bible Exhibition (Károlyi Gáspár Museum, Gönc) were made in partnership
with MOME TechLab. At the exhibition 9 interactive installations and a mobile application presents
the world of the Bible.
Dürer in Motion
The Dürer engravings show the life of Christ.
Algorithmic Zoo is an installation that is introducing the different species (plants and animals) that
can be found in the Bible. The concept behind the piece comes from the act of collecting and
organizing cards, accessing data in a tactile and traditional way. Groceries, gardens, botanical
collections sometimes have beautifully crafted cards for display information. In some gardens,
these markers can be found near living plants, and the written names on the markers are acting
like “links” to the actual botanical beauty. This analogy is taken into digital technology: by selecting
a card and placing it onto a specific area on the table, the system recognizes the selected item
and displays extensive, relevant information on a screen. This information is indicating the
occurences of the chosen species in the Bible (displaying the name of the books and chapters),
some general background information on them and a graphic representation of the plant or the
Protestant Bible Translations
Explore the various Hungarian Protestant Bible translations and their translators. The map shows
the places related to their making while in the gallery you can look into the different books.
Locations of the Bible
The aim of the project is to showcase and tell three significant stories of the Bible. We used maps
to give visual feedback of the scenes or locations of the stories and paths as timeline for the
First Names in the Bible
Several first names - maybe yours as well - derives from the Bible. Can you guess which? The
task is to choose the name - out of three - which comes from the Bible. The correct answer, the
meaning of the name and the related quotation is shown in the installation, which has different
levels of difficulty based on the frequency of the names.
Proverbs and Sayings Coming from the Bible
A lot of our proverbs and sayings derive from the Bible. Make a guess which proverb comes from
the Bible. You can choose from three levels of difficulty. You will get to know the meaning of the
sayings and can read the biblical references.
Reformist Bible Translations
Scrolling down the pages the full script of the latest translation of the Bible can be read. It is
interesting to compare how each passage was translated in previous versions. You can read an
explanation of the different interpretations at the bottom of the page.
Odd One Out
10 Bible related pictures can be seen each with 3 odd objects or details. The task is to find
these objects by the fewest number of taps. At the beginning you can choose whether you will
find the odd one out by 30, 40 or 50 taps in all the pictures. In the menu you can find the relevant
passages of the Bible, which tells the story of the pictures.
