Exhibit Design: West Office Exhibition Design
San Jose, CA (2006)
Global Traveler is a sliding monitor that moves along a curved track over a map in the wall. If a visitor hovers over a hot spot, they see information about that Cadence office. For this exhibit BBI designed, fabricated and programmed the entire exhibit. This is an example of our ability to design and fabricate electro-mechanical exhibits in our shop. Datastream is a striking exhibit for which a photo cannot do justice. Physically this is a plain table in the shape of a tilted arc whose radius matches its location in a drum shaped lobby. The background and the text are warped so they flow at the same radius as their location on the table. The interaction comes when you touch one of the words or phrases as it moves across the “screen.” A high resolution stereoscopic imaging system developed by BBI detects your hand touching the otherwise inert table and “pops up” a text box with more information about the topic you touched.
