Howell Conference & Nature Center, 2014

Design and fabrication of interactive wildlife-related exhibits.

The Howell Conference & Nature Center’s Spirit of Alexandria Nature Bus brings wildlife education to children throughout Michigan. Flutter & Wow’s Night Vision Interactive allows wildlife enthusiasts to compare their night vision to that of an owl, as they search for two small mice hidden within the exhibit. The interactive Wildlife Quiz Boards are designed to test your knowledge of all things wildlife, from birds of prey to creatures of the night to the diet and scat of Michigan mammals. The interchangeable quiz boards light up green or red to indicate correct or incorrect answers. The Night Vision Interactive and Wildlife Quiz Board exhibits are permanent installations on the nature bus.

Detroit Institute of Arts, 2013

Design and fabrication of working model/replica of pre-cinematic moving image device.

Designed and built for the Watch Me Move exhibition at the Detroit Institute of Art, the zoopraxiscope is displayed at the entryway of the exhibition. Before the movie film projector became the dominate technology, there were many proposals for moving motion image projectors. Our model is based on photographic pioneer Eadweard Muybridge’s 1879 zoopraxiscope, projecting images through rotating glass disks, providing a sense of motion.

Watch Me Move was organized by Barbican Centre, London.
