This interactive exhibit uses a human-scale display system to allow visitors to explore the photographic work of artist Tatiana Parcero on multiple levels of their own choosing. By projecting through a large pane of half-silvered glass and embedding a diverse range of sensors into the psychical display, the designer created an innovative way for users to incorporate into and interact with the artist’s work. The exhibit also includes a dynamic spatial interface that allows the user to explore a timeline of the artist’s personal and professional history.
The exhibit contains two major sections: a narrative that allows you to investigate twelve pieces of the artist’s work and a timeline that allows you to explore her professional and personal history. A user begins by reading a brief introduction to the project and is then guided into the narrative. At any point in time, the user can move directly to a different photograph by using the sensepad on the right. The user may also explore the artist’s timeline by sliding a finger along the left sensepad. To move through the narrative, the user gently waves a hand in front of the screen at particular moments in time.
