Red Hill Studios - Bishop Museum

Red Hill Studios developed several innovative interactive programs for the Richard T. Mamiya Science Adventure Center, one of which won the prestigious Communication Arts Award for Information Design.

The Conservation Lab Interactive utilized a complex rear-projection tracking system to present a truly novel specimen-based interactive. Visitors moved lucite ‘pucks’ containing actual specimens on top of a rear-projected monitor to play an “identification game” based on dichotomous keys. The Adaptive Radiation interactive display provided an innovative method for viewing a 30-foot long, 12-foot high, hermitically-sealed specimen display case. A movable monitor provided custom background information on each of 45 specimens by tracking the exact position of the monitor on a viewing rail. The same technique was utilized to provide detailed information on a 40′ long scale replica of the Hawaiian Island chain.
