this project was created during the first semester of my masters (interactive media design).
we were given the assignment to envision an interactive advert. so being a student and
not wanting to advertise for one of these huge companies without any face, we
decided to advert for an ngo (the one with the cute b&w animal logo).
this was not an official partnership, we just made it up.
the interactive installation simulates the destruction of the animal's natural habitat by humans. the user was invited to move a toy "park ranger" towards the pandas habitat along a milling on top of the box. The further they advance, the more they destroyed the digital representation of the panda's habitat. to read the user's position we used a makeymakey connected to several springs, which on contact, sent out information to our computer.
thank you guys for the awesome time we spent together in this project!!
