Situate allows me as Creative Director to add another layer to the viewer’s experience of gallery visits. Situate is both there and not there and allows viewers the option to access additional information without it being imposed upon them and allows curators to reveal another layer without having to be be literal or interpretive.

iBeacon Technology

You do not need iBeacons in order to offer Situate to your visitors. Without iBeacons visitors can manually navigate through your content. However, iBeacons add that element of ‘magic’. Visitors are automatically shown relevant content as they move around your physical space.

The iBeacon hardware is very simple to install. There is no requirement for any wiring, external power or network/wi-fi connection. Simply stick them to the wall or ceiling – and just twist to remove.
