Discussions this week centred around the ‘Flatholm Island’ sustainability picture… and how we integrate the audience interactivity with the weather data to portray the sustainable living and island. A dolls house was suggested. The playful aspect of the exhibit would involve the audience jumping on the ‘rain’ pressure sensor map to make the shower work etc. in the Flatholm Island farmhouse. The goal here is to provide the audience with a deeper sense of the environmental impact and how weather (rain, sun and wind) is crucial for existence on the island. The rotating toblerones form the sky and these would be responsive (15 minutes off realtime) to the island’s weather. The key takeaway message from this exhibit is awareness of the importance of our weather to sustain life on the Island, now and in the future.
We have started to think about how our sensors will look and work. Take a look at some draft wood etchings of Shel Duck that we have been exploring.
