Geologic Timeline

Wiess Energy Hall (2015 – 2017)


  • Adobe Air, Actionscript
  • Designed and programmed an interactive, sliding timeline with points of interest
  • Directed and contributed to art and animated content
  • Worked closely with writers and graphic designers

Working for Paul Bernhard Exhibit Design and Consulting on the Wiess Energy Hall at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, I developed a geologic timeline application.

A 22″ ELO touch monitor allows users to swipe through a visual geologic timeline. On a 65″ screen above, a sliding widget shows the names and categories of time the user has scrolled to below. Additionally, a minimalist animation related to a curated description plays, and a map of the continents animates through time as the user swipes.
