Camus 1913-2013 Digital Exhibit

Digital and hands-on, this exhibit  celebrates the centennial of the birth of the famous writer and philosopher, Albert Camus. The AFSCV is one of the first Alliances Françaises worldwide to offer this multimedia multi-language exhibit, designed to engage viewers in 40 countries throughout 2014. 

From UCSC to Stanford, from Reed Smith LLC Law Firm to Google Inc., the rotating display provides over one hour’s worth of curated content, including never-before-released photos from his publisher, Gallimard.

The exhibit is best viewed by using a smart phone, Android or iPhone. Download and install the application Albert CAMUS from the Playstore or iStore in order to scan any of the QR Codes displayed on the exhibit’s panels (a total of 30 codes) and enjoy videos, photos and text.

On the first scan, select your language from the list located at the bottom left of the phone’s screen (Arabic, Chinese, English, French, Spanish, and many more).

Another feature allows you to take a photo of you and your group and upload it to the web. You’ll join a huge worldwide mosaic of people like you who have seen the show.

We hope that you will enjoy this effort to bring a new approach to literature and philosophy to our neighborhoods.

For more information please visit The Institut Français online.

The Institut Français was at the origin of the creation of 7 panels representing a timeline of his life with QR codes allowing all of us with smart phone to access more than 100 pages of text and over 10 hours of videos. As an entertaining accessory, the application allowed any one to do a selfie to upload to the Institut’s website and participate to a mosaic of selfie’s from around the world.
