Our challenge was to create an experience on our campus or city that "serves as inspiration, honors the past, and is a vision of the future". Our team chose Walden Pond, a beautiful kettlehole in MA, and the birthplace of conservationism and transcendentalism. We wanted to create an experience that enhanced the natural beauty of the pond and inspired visitors to become more aware of themselves and the world around them.
I worked on defining the character of the chest and the story that it told, participating in both our research and brainstorming sessions. I created animations of the steam story in Photoshop, using footage I took of geysers steaming. The animations didn't make it into our final slides, but we learned what configurations of steam evoked which emotions, and I used these insights to create the final steam story slide.
