Tectonic Plates

Wiess Energy Hall (2015 – 2017)

Overview

  • Adobe Air, Flex, Actionscript
  • Designed and programmed a touch-screen application to allow visitors to view the past and future of tectonic plate motion​

Working for Paul Bernhard Exhibit Design and Consulting on the Wiess Energy Hall at the Houston Museum of Natural Science, I developed an interactive that allows users to scrub through time and view how tectonic plates have shifted in the past and how they are predicted to shift in the future.

A 42″ ELO touch monitor allows users to select either “Past” or “Future”, and scrub through a video of tectonic plate shift with a bar at the bottom. Later on, I also added a smaller bar in the top right for docents to use easily at an angle.
