BACKGROUND The Interactive Qatari Family Gallery is an exhibit in the Kahramaa Awareness Park, that features eight family members in a Qatari household. Each family member has a life-size portrait in the gallery. When the visitor aims the tablet’s camera towards the family member, he/she comes to life, stepping out of the portrait on the screen, and begins telling his/her experience with water and energy conservation. This is a fun exhibit playing with augmented reality technology.
I designed the tablet’s introduction screen, including the micro-interactions and layout. I stepped in to create the artwork and mini storyboards when the latest scripts changed from the original filmed scenes and storyboards.
Kept close communications with the teams, to standardize the visual and experiential elements.
Collaborated with a Qatari film/video agency and cultural consultant, for technical, artistic, and cultural endeavors.
Collaborated with an interactive agency in China, to conceptualize, produce, test, and install. All exhibits and experiences were in Arabic and English.
Designed and created print production files for the exhibit’s panel, that described the room and gave instructions for the visitors.
