Technology involvement in museums leads to novel ways of communicating the museum content. Among other technologies, body tracking opens up the possibilities for embodied involvement in narratives presented in the museums. In this demo, we explore how body tracking could enable museum visitors to participate in historical storytelling installations. For this, we implemented a setup where the visitor’s body is tracked via a motion capture device and projected as a character in the narration of an indigenous Sámi myth about the constellation of the stars, the Heavenly Hunt.
