It was the final session in Scarborough today, where the students had to present their finished installations. The four interactives have been combined into a single, touchscreen podium, installed on the first floor of the Rotunda Museum.
All four groups have done a fantastic job, producing installations that wouldn’t look out of place on permanent display. Combining learning and games, each one takes a slightly different approach to present their charms.
I’m now busy typing up my notes from the session to send back to the University to help provide some feedback to the groups. Unfortunately I can’t make it back to the opening reception on Wednesday, when hopefully they can celebrate their achievements.
The installation will be open from Thursday this week (18th) until the 28th November. If you get a chance then I highly recommend a visit. The students will be on hand over the period to help you out and talk through the work that they have done. Judging by the standard of some of the interactives you may well be seeing their installations in museums across the world in a few years time.
