Introducing Overheard

Overheard is a site-specific audio narrative woven into Mia.

Similar to immersive theater, it allows you to explore stories in your own way at your own pace as you journey through the museum.

As you explore the galleries, the app allows you to “overhear” characters through your headphones as if they are right there with you. Sometimes you will only hear a short bit of the virtual visitors’ conversations, but some characters allow you to follow along with them on their journey through the museum collection.

Overheard, winner of the inaugural 3M Art and Technology Award competition that recognizes artistry and innovation in the field of technology. The app was designed by Luxloop, a creative technology studio focused on finding new ways to captivate, inspire, and interact with fellow humans.

Overheard is now available as a free download on the App Store (iOS).
