This Mediadrom artful post-TV scenario consists in sketching the user interface of an interactive media content browsing system for exploring thematically sorted artworks, from the art field of plastic theater, merging art pieces at the intersection of the visual and the performing arts. Combining a touchscreen and an hypermedia browser of image and video content with expert annotations, this system can be installed in venues such as museum and media libraries, and performance spaces as satellite installation to plastic theater performances.
