I had the pleasure of working on the design of the IBM Think Exhibit that opened in New York in September 2011, exploring the process of making the world a better place from observing a problem, to visualizing and taking action.
The exhibit features a 120ft long data visualization wall with live data feeds, a 10 minute immersive film over 40 7ft-tall screens, which become interactive touchscreens further exploring the problem solving process.
I worked on concept, storyboarding/wireframing, design and production art for all 3 exhibit components on a design team of 5-10 people.
– Data Visualization Wall: styleframe design for water leakage in NY
– Immersive film: drawing storyboards, styleframes for the rice (2nd) segment of the film
– Interactive: pitched concepts and interaction design for 2 of the 5 interactives, one of the concepts going through to manifestation (can be seen in the video at 1:20), storyboards, wireframes, UI skinning, production art
What I enjoyed about this project was immersing myself in the larger message of how data and information have been vital to human progress, and using more of my creative faculties to tackle the multiple scales and problem solving to communicate the message across different mediums. Left-brain and right-brain problem solving!
