Death by Natural Causes Exhibition (2018)
The touch monitor is mounted in front of a crystal ball with a cell phone screen placed behind it. When a user completes a quiz, a smoke cloud video is played on the second screen and the number of years they have left “poofs” into existence in the ball. It’s a really neat effect I had the pleasure of helping create with the engineering staff within the museum’s exhibits department.
While working as a contractor for the Houston Museum of Natural Science on the Death by Natural Causes Exhibition, I developed an intuitive quiz application to allow users to view how their life choices affect their lifespan.
A 32″ ELO touch monitor invites users to tap, drag, and swipe their way through a card-based quiz to find out how many years they have left in their lives.
