For my inspiration piece I took a route inspired by Ekene Ijeoma and decided to create an interactive sketch that was informative and fun for children to learn about “The Big Bang”. As of right now the sketch is very flat and I would like to expand upon it by adding 3-d features and including information about each planet.
I imagine this piece in the Exploratorium in San Francisco, an interactive museum for children that teaches them how things work. Ideally there would be a large monitor displaying the sketch and then a large trackpad that allowed users to click around intuitively. Essentially it would just be a large monitor and trackpad so it wouldn’t be too difficult to set up. Processing would the only software in order to create this, if I had knowledge of how to use OpenFrameWorks than I would use the depth that, that software allows to create a more realistic view of The Big Bang.
