Digital Dream - An Interactive Installation From Four Design Students

Digital Dream - An Interactive Installation From Four Design Students

Four design students from the States built an interactive wall with Touch Boards, Arduino and Processing to tell the story of achievements in science.

Four art students, Ingyun Dai, Keyue Qi, Niduan Zhou, Shuang Hao from the Savannah College of Art and Design in Georgia created a project called Digital Dream. It’s a storytelling wall made using Touch Boards, Arduino and processing. When a visitor touches the illustration on the wall they can watch it come alive. Dai, Qi, Zhou, and Hao also created an interactive companion project book to provide more insight into their inspiration.

The team got their inspiration from the combination of four achievements in science. The first one is "EnChroma", glasses for the colour blind. The second is "TransMedics", a device to revive dead hearts for transplants, the third one is "Vetigel”, a plant-derived gel that stops bleeding in seconds. The last one is "Myo" a gesture control armband. The whimsical imagery in this piece illustrates the thoughts and ideas of digital generation. We are all exposed to modern innovations in science where humans strive to improve the quality of life, which is juxtaposed to the desensitisation to violence and destruction that we are exposed to in our daily lives.
