‘Interactive Documentary’: Jheronimus Bosch, the Garden of Earthly Delights

Added to the Museum of Data by Zachary Cannon on Thursday, November 10, 2022. Museum of Data Collection ID: 1203.

Public description: A website hosting an interactive documentary detailing Jheronimus Bosch's painting "The Garden of Earthly Delights", created between 1490 and 1510. The user may follow a 'Highlight Tour' wherein a voice narrates aspects of the painting and provides historical and theological context. The tour is self-paced and the user must advance through it manually. Between narrations, a 'soundscape' is played consisting of ambient, 'natural' sounds, choral music, and mystical strings. The user can also 'freely explore' by zooming in and out and panning anywhere on the painting which, after a short delay, will render greater and greater resolution upon the 'closeness' of the user's view. The detail on closest view is incredibly fine and would otherwise only be possible 'in-person' with a microscope.
