DOT - Dome of Transmissions

DOT - DOME OF TRANSMISSIONS - 2015
Client: Science Museum
Audience: Students, Schools and Families
The DOT is an Itinerant Ehxibition projected to the Science Museum that aims to take the museum to those who cannot go to the museum. Inside the DOT, the audience will be able to visualize all sorts of Signals and their invisible polution, as well as learn about their nature and role in our society. Also interact with them in order to raise awareness about radiofrequency, human health, digital communication and privacy.


The logo was entirely built on Processing 2.1 to react to Sound captured from a microfone. In the original ideia, each layer reacts to a frequency band. Wavelenghts change according to the intensity of that particular frequency in that particular place. So for every city, we have its own version of the logo. Grid divisions and subdivisions comes from a base 3 numeric proportions.



Bright highly saturated colours always overlayed. Gradient tones inspired by the RGB colours from spectrum machines. The wide range of colours represents the diferent sorts of signals. Inside the DOT, the audience have contact with a interactive environment. The Interactive Floor displays the satellite map of that particular place where the audience can visualize the all the antennas and their range. Throught simple shapes, the users can understand what is going on above and around them.


To have access to the DOT, the audience receives a device to unlock all the interactive areas inside the dome. A táctile shape with a RFID/ NFC tag attached to it works as a souvenir and can be used to promote engagement when used as a photo filter. The shape is based on the "i" glyph related to the body of an antenna.


Hunting Signals (App) and Educacional Pack (Augmented Reality Simulation)
Gamification Campaign / Advergame / Engage Audience
The game has 8 Levels just like the 8 Layers in the Logo and the main 8 Frequency Bands. A total of 8 Activities. The player has to solve all 8 puzzles in order to get the prize. Each puzzle is related to one different sort of signal. The challenges are only  available to the users of that current region where the DOT is installed. Prizes can be free tickets, discounts, collectables, trips, museum related souvenir or tours. The app is used to storage the answers, to know more about the DOT and its itinerary and to play around with the Educational Pack.
