Future Energy Kiosks

Wiess Energy Hall (2015 – 2017)

Overview

  • Adobe Air, Flex, Actionscript, Dropbox
  • Designed and programmed eight kiosks to display text, images, and videos with custom callouts
  • All content is remotely updatable and applications are self-updating
  • Worked closely with writers, graphic designers​, and lighting specialists

Each of these applications displays at least one 4K video from the popular German video production company Kurzgesagt, which was hired to create infographic-style videos for the purpose of this exhibit.

All applications update their respective content automatically to the newest version from a Dropbox repository using direct links.

Working for Paul Bernhard Exhibit Design and Consulting on the Wiess Energy Hall at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, I developed a set of four interactive touch screen kiosks with content related to the future of energy production, trade, and consumption.

A 42″ ELO touch monitor allows users to select from two categories: “Explore” to access an article about the topic, assorted video content, and an integrated glossary, and “Gallery” to display an interactive, grid-based gallery holding anywhere from 6 to 24 images (arranged dynamically in the grid).
