Caesarea Stars is a dual screen, five language, touch screen interactive developed for the Caesarea Development Corporation in Israel. The interactive brings to life twelve historical characters spanning four time periods, who have each had an influence on Caesarea. Using a touch screen, visitors are able to navigate a timeline of Caesarea, find out about each character and ask them questions. Installed in an almost dark space, the characters are brought alive as life-size video, projected onto HoloPro.
Landscape Evolution is a touch screen interactive developed for The Fens Discovery Centre, and is presented and narrated by David Bellamy. In his own unique way, David explores and discusses the Fens landscape and its history. The information is structured to be easily digestible by all, but allows visitors who want to delve deeper, to quickly find and consume more in-depth information. Some of David’s video explanations are supported by animations, which help to interpret the topics being discussed.
In 2003, archaeologists discovered Britain’s only known Ice Age rock art in the caves at Creswell Crags, engravings of animals, birds and motifs which are 13,000 years old. A new visitor centre at Creswell opened in 2009, and one of the interactives I developed for it was Talk to the Experts. This high definition, touch screen installation allows visitors to interact with a number of experts, and hear their explanations about the Ice Age rock art, how it was created, and what life would have been like for the people who created the art.
I developed a suite of touch screen interactives as part of an interpretive display for St. Hilda’s Parish Church in Hartlepool. Henry of York allows visitors to learn about the daily life of the master mason who built the Church. Meet the People presents a series of interactive video interviews with members of the congregation. The Bruces gives the opportunity to meet and interact with both Robert the Bruce and William De-Brus.
