Demo + Exhibitions
I decided to pivot and animate directly in Lens Studio as it would save a lot of space. Using Mixamo, I was able to animate my human model already modelled in the previous iteration and coded in the animations in Lens Studio. Additionally, I found another creative way to make the dollar note open and have a 3D effect where the "corporate zombies" were trapped in the note. I tested this effect with users and also showed them my previous iterations after and they enjoyed this effect the most as it had the unexpected reveal that was a lot more impactful. structions worked well within the story and people were able to navigate with the visual cues (the magnifying glass) and text instructions to move from the first image target to the next.
Interaction design challenge for Willoughby Walks 2022:
As this piece was being exhibited at 3 different exhibitions, interaction design was very important here. For the Willoughby Walks 2022 exhibition, there was no one manning the booth. Hence, I had to make it as easy as possible to interact with the piece. I separated the image targets into 2 stations and made sure their placements were clearly labelled. I also made an instructional card with images for people to refer to. Without any guidance from me, I tested this with people and the instructions were clear enough for folks to go through the piece without much trouble.
