    Published:

The Crahmanti team (Heather Crank, Gary Tussey, Greg Amanti, Jason Lovejoy and David Obuchowski) were commissioned to create an exhibit for Bend DesignCon 2016 inside of the Liberty Theater.

The aim of the exhibit was so engage conference attendees while registering for Bend DesignCon as well as to encourage interaction/engagement with the exhibits and between the conference participants.

The Bend Design Exhibit was broken down into 3 components:

Way-finders: Comprised of 2 branded light boxes, and stickers placed on the sidewalk directing conference goers to the Liberty as well as to peak the interest of passersby.

Branding: The branding elements included a 4' x 4' a hand painted logo on canvass and window decals.
Interactive Elements: Compromised of a PNCH Wall, and a projection mapped cube installation.

The PNCH Wall's objective was to increase interaction with local businesses. We placed local swag inside of each hexagram along with a slip of paper with a social media call to action. The Hexagrams were covered with 2 layers of tissue paper that the conference attendees were encourage to PNCH and retrieve a prize.
The Liberty is a large, long space.  During registration, we wanted to encourage the participants to move throughout the room, without create congestion.  The projection mapped cube was 4' x 4' and centered in the back of the room to anchor the space.

Several artists work were displayed on the cube as well as interviews from the following:

INTERVIEWS:
Joey Korenman's (found of the School of Motion) interview with Lilian Darmono "Nobody is Born a Designer".


We started with a model....
Next Gary mocked up some 3_D models to calculate the height of the projectors, distance of the focal length, and the angles of the cube. Gary also began testing out the interviews with a 3_D animation.
Meanwhile Greg built the cube.
Finally, we set up and installed the cube.
