Projects: PLANT/Science Museum/Energy Everywhere
Energy Everywhere is a large-scale exhibit for the Energy Gallery in the Science Museum, London. It is the result of a collaboration with Landesign Studio and takes the form of a projection within a custom display area, housing a series of sensors. Users stand upon a large illuminated floor tile to participate as an animated graphic scene, complete with a powerful sound scape, plays out before them, explaining the fundamental laws of energy.
At key moments within the animation the action stops and users are invited to 'make energy' by either acting out digging for coal, spinning their arms to make wind, or clapping their hands to create bolts of lightning. After 5 minutes of play the story ends. The result is an atmospheric, dramatic and engaging interactive story.
The video animated sequences for the piece were generated by Jess Scott-Hunter.
