So honored and excited that the City Explorer children’s game installation at NYU Hassenfeld children’s hospital has been honored by the Society for Experiential Design! As my friends know, this is a project that kept me busy for most of 2018, when I was working as an illustrator, in collaboration with the talented designers and developers at Potion, to bring eight scenes of New York City to life. The final installation is wall sized, and gives children who are hospitalized, and otherwise unable to visit the iconic spaces of the city, a chance to visit them and enact superpowers while there! (The skyline illustrations shown above is one set for a game where children can control the weather, and create fireworks by clapping their hands.)
Here is a quote from one of the judges: “A simple installation, with simple interaction, that explodes with vibrance and wonder as a result of its superior content. The variety of visual styles, as well as the variety and extensible interaction modes, makes a compelling installation that is a pure expression of imagination, without interference from the technology or its modes of human-computer interaction.”
