The interactive project, “Sanduq El-Dunia”, is now being exhibited at the Child Museum in Heliopolis. Sanduq El-Dunia could be translated as “the world in a box” and offers an exciting possibility for all family members to have a tour through time and place, discovering Egypt’s past, present and future.
Sanduq El-Dunia consists of a large touchscreen installation giving access to a vast collection of historical and contemporary photographs and material on Cairo’s urban heritage. It also works as a gateway for the public to debate and reflect on the historical development of Cairo, offering the users a unique look at Cairo’s past and present by digitally navigating through the city.
The touchscreen was designed as an Egyptian parallel to the award-winning project “The Wall”, pioneered by the Museum of Copenhagen with the Gibson Group. Sanduq El-Dunia was initiated by DEDI in 2012.
Sanduq El-Dunia is still “open” and the visitors are encouraged to contribute to the collection of historical and contemporary photographs on the website.
It is possible to experience Sanduq El-Dunia at the Child Museum in Heliopolis every day from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm.
