Weird & Wonderful You at Mystic Aquarium
This fun and funky exhibition allows visitors a ‘beneath-the-depths’ glimpse of the weird and wonderful creatures who inhabit our oceans. At the “Weird & Wonderful You!” station, visitors morph into an octopus or a paddlefish, and later see their animal avatars swimming around a virtual fishtank. And unsuspecting aquarium-goers are in for a scary treat at “From the Deep,” as they come face to face with some of the most mysterious ocean creatures, such as the sperm whale, the goblin shark, and the angler fish. Like magic, they ascend from the depths on an 80-inch monitor masked with a scrim, before swimming off, leaving a trail of bubbles and fun facts in their wake.
125 Summer Street Lobby
Working with Boston-based creative studio LLM Design, Trivium Interactive developed this 9-monitor data visualization art piece that graces the lobby of Oxford Properties ‘125 Summer Street office-building. Three different “chapters” unfold over the course of a day, slowly changing based on different data inputs. In “Transportation,” different ways commuting into the heart of the city, with 125 Summer at the center, are drawn across the screens. In “Stocks,” the rise and fall of major stocks throughout the day unfolds and collapses in a graceful ballet. And in “Twitter,” Twitter feeds from throughout the city pulse on and off the screens. Each chapter also changes hues based on the local weather, and video loops of vibrant city life can be seen in the background.
Mill Memory Bank at the Museum of Work & Culture
Trivium completed the second phase of this exhibit experience, making the original Mill Memory Bank thoroughly interactive by adding a station to allow visitors to search for a particular mill or person, or view oral histories about life in Woonsocket. Additional phases of the experience call for adding an interactive map of the town of Woonsocket over the centuries. Trivium collaborated with exhibit designer Content Design Collaborative to bring this project to life.
SeaChange at Mystic Seaport
In this groundbreaking modern exhibit experience, ten key artifacts from the institution’s collections explore the theme of transformation from over the past two hundred years. Some of these artifacts have never been on display before, and each is accompanied by an evocative and timeless media presentation. The large 20-foot sail at the beginning of the exhibition was painstakingly projection-mapped by Trivium and sets the stage for the theme of “seachange” that visitors will find throughout the experience. Trivium collaborated with Mystic Scenic Studios, Palley Consulting, and designers The McMillan Group to develop this alluring new exhibition.
Explore-a-Saurus Interactive for Boston Children's Museum
What did dinosaurs look like? Did they have feathers? Were they different colors? At this hands-on interactive station, even the youngest visitors are encouraged to become scientists as they use the evidence around them to envision their own dinosaur. Visitors spin the wheel to choose a texture (picked up by a camera feed), and then select a color on the touchscreen...and color a coelophysis in real time directly on screen. Trivium collaborated closely with the Museum’s own in-house staff to design, develop, and test this interactive before launching it as part of this traveling exhibition.
Pack It Up, Pioneer! for the Indiana State Museum
The Indiana State Museum is undergoing a massive multi-phase gallery makeover. For this new 19th State gallery, visitors learn about the early history of Indiana and how the pioneers built new communities. Pack It Up is presented on a transparent touchscreen, with a covered wagon backdrop. Visitors “pack” their wagon in order to make the perilous trek across the land to their new home. As they make the difficult choice of what to pack, the items get “placed” into the accompanying covered wagon. Trivium worked under Group Delphi, and alongside the Museum’s in-house team, to develop this refreshing wagon-journey experience.
TRANE Magic Wall for AHR 2017 Booth
Las Vegas, NV
Working with exhibit fabricator Group Delphi, Trivium developed a “Magic Wall” for TRANE’s 4200 square foot exhibit booth at the 2017 International Air-Conditioning, Heating, Refrigerating Exposition. Over 68,000 attendees over the course of a few days got the opportunity to explore TRANE’s commitment to sustainability, connectivity, and efficiency at this four-screen multi-user multi-touch wall.
The Color Club for ARTitorium on Broadway
The Color Club, part of the ARTitorium’s refreshed Virtual Gallery space, inspires children of all ages to explore art in an open-ended manner. Different wheels sort art via color, who (artist), what (subject), when (is it old, or is it really really old?), where (with a shout out to Idaho artists!), and how (media). And, to round it all out, there is a wild category that captures other art elements and encourages exploration of lines, textures, and shapes. With six stations to choose from, visitors to at The Color Club can really master their own artful mix!
The Refugee Road, Oxfam America
Cambridge, MA and Redmond, WA
Trivium worked as the experience designer for this one-night immersive interactive event, which focused on the worst humanitarian crisis of our time. Participants were presented with the powerful themes of choice, loss, and uncertainty, as they were asked to explore the Syrian Refugee crisis. The Trivium team provided overall experience design, artifact sourcing, and multimedia services for the inaugural event, and then again for the next event on Microsoft’s Campus in Washington State.
New York Power Authority’s Power Vista
The Power Vista offers visitors a uniquely “electrifying” experience. Starting their visit with an RFID-embedded Power Play Card, visitors use hands-on interactive media to learn the fundamentals of electricity. (Their badge then allows them to collect their media to view at home.) The star of the show is the “Transmission Table,” where—using object-recognition technology—visitors can build a power grid with 3D-printed pieces placed on 6 monitors. Bruce was the creative director on Transmission Table, Power Play, and Power Pool. Kirsten was the executive producer, art-director, and client liaison for all 25 interactive exhibits. Other key Trivium team members contributed multimedia content, graphics, design, and animations for this successful venue.
Members of the Trivium team collaborated with Johnson Hehr Associates and BPI as well as prime contractor and exhibit fabricator Hadley Exhibits.
