Three dynamic, interactive media programs were recently launched in Denmark, each one capturing both the essence of the past and the energy of the present to create a chapter of history for future generations. Copenhagen's 1,001 Stories Project at www.kulturarv.dk/1001fortaellinger/en_GB is a new initiative from the Heritage Agency of Denmark, shares the stories of Denmark's points of interest via downloadable audio and accompanying maps and photos. The list includes well-known places such as "Hamlet's Castle" at Kronborg and the freetown of Christiania in Copenhagen; lesser-known places with stories such as the 1970s Brutalist architecture of Odder Town Hall; and the historic lighthouses of Skagen and the Holmegaard Glassworks, built on the site of a medieval peat bog that provided the natural fuel used to heat the glass furnaces.
Users can listen to the stories (narrated in English) on the Internet, via mobile phones or PDAs or on their car's GPS as they road-trip through Denmark. The archive of 1,001 Stories will continue to grow with input from more storytellers, everyone is invited to participate.
The Wall, at www.copenhagen.dk/en/whats_on/the_wall/what_is_the_wall, is a dynamic outdoor installation created by the Museum of Copenhagen and now standing in Kongens Nytorv square in the city center. The Wall features four interactive touch screens with a total span of nearly 40 feet highlighting hundreds of audio-visual images and impressions of Copenhagen, past and present. Visitors set the screens in motion with a single touch, time-traveling through the city's many neighborhoods for a look at life then and now. The Wall is always evolving and each day brings something new as photos and commentary are added by locals and visitors at The Wall itself or via the Museum of Copenhagen's website. The project debuted in April and will continue for the next four years, relocating throughout the city.
The Museum of Copenhagen's new Audiowalks in Vesterbro is located at www.copenhagen.dk/en/visit/around_town/audio-walks_in_vesterbro. The program focuses on this slice of true Copenhagen with a choice of six MP3-based audio tours presented by a group of young writers and artists who share their Vesterbro with visitors, from the places they go and the things they do today to the heritage that drew them to Vesterbro in the first place.
