Chance-It Multi-touch Table Listen Up!
August 23, 1966
As Mark Weiser writes, “The most profound technologies are those that disappear. They weave themselves into the fabric of everyday life until they are indistinguishable from it.” Astronomy gains meaning through personal contexts, and we will use visual and auditory aesthetic with technology to cement a connection between them. We target especially the accidental passerby, the person whose curiosity has not yet been piqued or has perhaps been doused. We will provide access to the hidden world that surrounds us so that participants may gain a deep appreciation for vastly disparate scales and find personal significance in our shared physical cosmology. Joseph Campbell claims that “Life has no meaning. We bring meaning to it.” This project is an effort to facilitate the infusion of meaning for the scientifically uninitiated. For the School of Art & Design’s astronomy themed show in May and for the GROCS showcase we will deploy an interactive installation that engages both physically and virtually through a combination of digital and non-electronic media.
