The Sun Interactive Installation – The Science Museum
Demonstrating the Sun’s movements around the world
We were asked to create a key interactive for the Science Museum’s blockbuster exhibition, The Sun – Living With Our Star. The exhibit needed to show visitors how the Sun’s movements varied depending on where in the world they were located and at what time of year.
We wanted to simulate the drama and beauty of sunrises and sunsets inside the gallery. We created an atmospheric low resolution LED video wall placed behind frosted acrylic panels, that immersed the visitor and bathed them with a soft, rich light. Different locations and seasons could be selected on the accompanying touchscreen to show the variation in the Sun’s path. The interactive then showed the visitor, through beautiful colour gradients, the Sun’s arc throughout the day. The different locations had iconic silhouette landscapes to help locate the visitor.
