Fortress and Fantasy

Summer 2008

An interactive exhibition that invited children and parents to connect with the actual fortress structure at the Tower of David and then leap into the realms of fantasy with the aid of state of the art technology.

Visitors embarked on a hands-on exploration of the real life fortress of the Tower of David, through the moats, tunnels and turrets learning about the fortress as the adventure unfurled. The fortress then became the back drop for an adventure into the land of fantasy. Children were invited to move, to touch, to sense and to utilize different interactive media platforms and technologies developed by the Israeli company eyeclick, thereby entering a virtual world of castles, myths and fantasies.

Exhibition curator: Liat Margalit
