PROTOTYPING PRACTICE

INTERACTIVE MUSEUM DESIGN

Prototype
 

 

When I went to the Museum of Arts and Design (MAD), I found very interesting sign right next to the elevator,
"Consider using the Stairs." I asked the worker and told me that there are some hidden artworks in stairwell.
I started to observe people who actually use the stairs and realize the hidden artwork display.
There were only few people who actually paid attention to it, and also people with disability or elders had no chance to see those artworks.
So I was thinking what if I create an interactive installation that makes both people in the staircase
and people inside of the museum enjoy the artwork together?

This is my final prototype for my interactive installation for MAD.
My target audience & user group is both visitors who take the stairs and who enjoys sitting in the museum.
My goal was to find a way to make everyone enjoy stairwell artworks and make MAD's stairways active and playful.

When the visitor steps on the stairs, the distance sensor will detect the visitor's motion
and the artwork projected on the wall will start to appear.
As the visitor steps more on the stairs, the image will get sharp and clear based on the distance.
The visitor can play with the stairs and enjoy the image formation. And at the same time,
the same image is projected inside of the museum, so people who are inside of the room can also enjoy the artwork.
