Archiving a Museum with an Interactive Exhibit
Advisors: Ingrid Shockey and Fred Looft
Emma Lowry, Lauren Herchenroder, Lewis Guy, and Nathan Jackson
This team worked with The Hönnunarsafn Íslands Museum of Design and Applied Art to design and develop an interactive VR exhibit that could showcase museum artifacts not physically on display. Students researched digital interactive exhibits in other museums, identified the best practices for developing them, and used this information to develop a user-friendly VR exhibit prototype.
Mitigating the Climate Crisis Though Lakota Teachings
Advisors: Thomas Balistrieri
Isabelle Cordova, Avery Smith, Maureen Ye
This team focused on investigating Lakota philosophies of living and applying what we learned to the climate crisis. By conducted ar-chival research and semi-structured interviews with Lakota elders, they came to understand that the Lakota people perceive their relationship with nature differently than those who live in the dominant culture. Lakota people perceive ev-erything as a sacred relative. The team believed this philosophy of inter-relationship would help miti-gate the climate crisis, and shared what they learned through short videos and an audio landscape.
