The queue management system InOut was launched in a whole new way at the end of August, representing modern technology and also regulating the flow of visitors to the exhibition "Samaltie” by foundation “The Art Needs Space".
The Exhibition “Samaltie” is dedicated to the sculptor Emīls Melderis and highlights one of the central themes of his life and work - the life of people in the countryside home.
Using unusual techniques, it encourages to think about the lifestyle of modern townspeople, as opposed to the life of rural people, whose rhythm is determined by traditions inherited from ancestors. The exhibition is made up of several contrasting parts, mutually contradistinguishing urban life and modern technology with a rural lifestyle, but not making judgements.
The queue management system InOut both represents technology era and regulates the flow of visitors from one part of the exhibition to another. The InOut ticket printer and information screen are housed in a separate dark room where people stay until they are called to move on. More than 500 people attended the opening of the exhibition "Samaltie" on August 27, while the rest of the days the printer prints around 60-70 tickets.
“Indeed, InOut is a very characteristic symbol of today's IT technology products, and has been accurately perceived by exhibition’s authors. IT technologies are needed because of the rapid urban lifestyle of people. We are excited about the opportunity to be a part of this art exhibition and the discussion it brings. The cooperation with the exhibition organizers was very successful and we hope to continue it in other projects as well,” concludes Viesturs Lasmanis, Chairman of the Board of SIA Timesaving.
Exhibition "Samaltie" is open to visitors until September 9 at the Summer House of foundation “The Art Needs Space” in Esplanade, Riga, Latvia. The authors of the exhibition are young artists Ance Vilnīte, Oto Holgers Ozoliņš and Roberts Bāliņš together with the famous sculptor Aigars Bikše. This is the closing exhibition of this summer's “LMA100” series.
