When we visited Techniquest two weeks ago, we quickly realised that it will be important to keep the rotating toblerones at a height (i.e. out of the way of little fingers). Examining the exhibit space, we started to sketch out the below scenario. The rotating toblerones will present the weather on the island (15 minutes off of real time). These will form the sky on the display. The weather is linked to the rotation of the wind turbine, lights in the house and amount of water in the glass. The audience can also help light the house, rotate the turbine and fill the glass by jumping on pressure sensor mats.
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.
