Tasked with creating a new experience within a dated and boring one at Queensland’s Art Gallery located in Southbank as a apart of a university class. After first visits the exhibit I wanted to create a new experience for was clear. There is a small room off to the right at the art gallery as you walk in, if you enter there is four static panels on the wall. The space is called New Materials and unfortunately it has been left behind with the new developments.
The idea was to transform the room into a more immersive experience for the viewers to go in and learn more in a more interactive way than before.
By utilising kinect senors and projectors, the system would be able to track when a user enters promoting them to select an option on the screen which in this cause would be a different kind of material environment. The system would then kick into gear displaying a visualisation of that environment and educating the user on what lives there and allowing them to interact with the animals.
