冰球突破官网的 BA (Hons) Digital Media Production students have been working with the community on the “爱阿波” project as part of their Immersive 而且 Sensory Design module in their second year.
“Love The Arbo” is a free enchanted trail of 光 for all to explore based in the Arboretum community, 它位于伍斯特城的中心. 每年2月的情人节前后举行, “Love The Arbo” is a community event where window displays using all kinds of materials, 灯光和声音都是由居民自己亲手制造的! This year BA (Hons) Digital Media Production students were invited to work with the Committee to develop a series of immersive installations in the Pocket Park, 在植物园内.
“爱阿波”获得了伍斯特拱门项目的投资, 由文化发展基金资助, 而且 together with funding from the 艺术学院’ Learning 而且 Teaching Fund, 学生们的想法在2月12日星期六变成了现实th.
海伦福尔摩斯, Course Leader for BA (Hons) Digital Media Production at the 冰球突破官网 said, ”很高兴能与“爱阿波”团队合作. This has been an invaluable opportunity for our students to collaborate with the community, 并将他们的创意理念贯彻到最终产品, 在行动. We hope this is just the beginning of our partnership 而且 have many ideas for future development.”
Each of the five teams of students have now had time to reflect upon their work:
Student work: Phoebe West, Fi Neil, Jack Ashfield, Maria Vieira, Matilde Compos Moura 而且 Ben Howse
冰球突破官网将冰球突破官网的团队命名为Lux Animalis，在拉丁语中是轻动物的意思, as our installation was based upon wild animals that you may discover around the world. As a group we wanted to make our display as bright 而且 interesting as possible, 所有年龄段的人都会喜欢并参与其中. We believe our team achieved this 而且 more! 冰球突破官网的 installation had two main eye catchers - a giant paper house 而且 a huge paper rocket. The rocket had colourful 光s around it 而且 the house had a creative image projected onto it, 哪个吸引了所有人的眼球. We also had little paper buildings dotted around our section with different coloured 光s shining inside them, which was a great photo opportunity that we saw many people take advantage of.
Overall, we are very proud of our team 而且 what we learned 而且 were able to achieve. 冰球突破官网将永远感激冰球突破官网能够创造的展示, that was enjoyed by so many people.

冰球突破官网的目的是教育和娱乐小孩子, 在热带雨林中可以找到的自然元素中. 冰球突破官网的装置包括创建两个楼层投影, 它展示了六种不同的鸟类和一个水序列, 展示各种各样的鱼, 睡莲和青蛙. 除了这些投影，还有鸟叫声和水声, 为了让社区沉浸在一个感官环境中, 帮助他们平静下来.
冰球突破官网觉得冰球突破官网的安装是成功的. 社区理解并认同冰球突破官网的雨林概念. 冰球突破官网相信冰球突破官网在活动期间为每个人提供了服务, there were visually impaired alumni 而且 they said “I am glad that there were identifiable sounds as it helps me picture what I am hearing”. 这温暖了冰球突破官网的心! We really enjoyed seeing the community enjoying our instillation, it made it all worthwhile. What we take away from this project is, the idea of being able to support everyone to receive 而且 engage with information, regardless of sensory abilities.
冰球突破官网的 installations focussed on space. We created a miniature planetarium that featured the game of guess the two missing planets, 吸引游客. We also created a galaxy patch that comprised of a sheet of fabric painted to look like a galaxy, 用灯和悬挂的纸maché行星. 这两个环节都有音频，以创造沉浸式的氛围.
We enjoyed watching the community interact with our pieces in a positive manner throughout the night. 这是一个很好的机会.
Student work: Rachel Oliver, Stefani Slavcheva, Karolina Szlezak 而且 Jake S而且ers
冰球突破官网的 creative concept was to create an immersive fairy-tale village using augmented reality, 预测, 光, 模型和声音. We were aiming for our audience to feel fully immersed when viewing our installation. 冰球突破官网观察孩子们在iPad上与AR角色互动, 而且 the older generation enjoyed it too!
We felt this was a successful approach to the brief because we had very positive feedback from the clients, 英国广播公司(BBC), 还有社区, all commenting that they felt immersed. In completing this project we were able to underst而且 the journey of working in the creative industry with real clients, 创造一个沉浸式的作品, 而且 we really enjoyed the experience.
Student Work: Lucy Barugh, Ivo Soares, Todd Sassin, Fay Askew 而且 Joe Toft
冰球突破官网的概念集中在植物园的历史上. 该装置包括一系列的五个盒子, 每个都有一个iPad, 展示了一个迷你, 视觉的视频. 在这, 盒子里有小人的微缩场景, which enhanced the immersive scene. 与这些箱子一起工作, 时间轴包括给观众一个书面描述, describing what each box was about. It provided the chance to learn something new about the history of the Arboretum.
冰球突破官网的 audience found it engaging to learn about the Arboretum 而且 thought the idea of small boxes was clever. One visitor admitted that our display felt quite immersive in the fact that you were drawn to inside the box with the iPad.
We will take-away the feeling of working for a real-life client for a positive cause that impacts the local community 而且 allows everybody onsite to take a break from realism.
“很高兴与数字媒体专业的学生和团队合作. Their creations made an amazing addition to our event 而且 were welcomed by everyone who visited. The students all did a fantastic job of fitting in with the community at both the demonstration session 而且 event itself. We look forward to building on this partnership with the 冰球突破官网!”
