Moana – My Ocean Exhibition
Concept, design and production of Augmented Reality Projects for Auckland War Memorial Museum’s Moana My Ocean Exhibition.
We created two separate Augmented Reality stations for users at the exhibition to interact with a seaweed holdfast structure and a map-based migration model. Using mounted iPads as microscope-like devices, users interact with physical blocks to discover richer content displayed on the screens. A deliberate removal of any onscreen navigation means users are free to explore totally with their hands on the physical blocks. This form of interaction tends to remove the barriers to discovery for the younger and older users who can traditionally struggle with screen-based media. The iPad screen becomes almost invisible to the experience as users become focused on moving and orienting the blocks.
