THE MORTON ARBORETUM
We’re partnering with The Morton Arboretum to create a suite of online materials to compliment their new Gateway to Tree Science exhibition. The Canopy Career Chronicles website, launching in July 2019, helps high school students explore career paths in botany and related fields through eight narratives crafted from interviews with the Arboretum’s staff. To produce the graphic novels and bring the content to life, we’re collaborating with Spring Shoe Animation and Illustration. An additional toolkit for professionals comprised of interactive stories about local tree care techniques will be available before the end of the year.
UNIVERSITY OF MICHIGAN MUSEUM OF NATURAL HISTORY
Angle Park, Inc. has tapped us to contribute to several installations for the museum’s new facility, which will be fully complete and open to the public in November 2019. Project highlights include filming footage for an
ultra-wide, immersive projection about the state’s rich biological and cultural history and designing a digital interactive that explores how glaciers shaped the topography of the Ann Arbor region. In addition to designing the interactive’s overall user experience, we’re also executing both the fly-over footage and custom scientific animations, embedded visuals that demonstrate each glacial formation in context of the landscape.
THE ORIENTAL INSTITUTE
We’re producing a suite of experiences for the Oriental Institute’s celebratory centennial exhibition, We Start Here: The OI at 100, opening in September 2019. Ranging from a large-scale atmospheric projection to videos and listening stations for specific object displays, the media elements visualize OI’s archaeological legacy through historical footage and highlight fieldwork and research projects taking place across the Middle East. We’re also creating an interactive to accompany the Chicago Demotic Dictionary display: On a touchscreen mounted next to the real papyrus, visitors can tap selected terms on a high-resolution scan to view the English translations and related scholarship.
