Abstract

This case study of ”Virtuelle Mauer/ReConstructing the Wall,” a prize-winning interactive 3D installation on the Berlin Wall, describes an approach using artistic concepts of abstraction and interactive narratology to simplify production and focus on subtle but powerful user interactions with the virtual world. Interactivity is predetermined and invariable, but after two years of exhibitions in Europe, the USA and South Asia, the authors are confident that it provides an engrossing, affective experience for a general public across cultures and including schoolchildren and their teachers, contemporary witnesses and their families, historians and historic preservationists.
