Using animation, text, and visual effects as elements of

projections on the Danish rune stone, Mejlbystenen (the

Mejlby stone), we have explored approaches to engaging

museum visitors. The installation positions itself in the

field of previous installations and experiments exploring

projection on physical objects, but is unique in focusing

on fusing the projection and the object in an engaging

approach to communicating information at a cultural

heritage museum. The Mejlby stone installation is now a

permanent installation at a cultural and historical

museum, and, based on observation as well as interviews

of museum visitors, we have analysed how the

installation supports sense-making, engaging

conversations, and playful engagement.
