Wing It — An Experimental Awareness Exhibit.
The Wing It Exhibit was the result of an experimental experiential graphic design course that paired designers with creative technology students. We designed an exhibit to call attention to the massive decline of winged insect biomass in recent years, and its damaging effect on our environment. This, paired with the insect collection at Virginia Tech, resulted in a modern yet awareness-focused experience. We began by designing for a virtual reality exhibit. Here, we could experience our design first hand, before fully implementing it into the space. This experience was incredible, as it allowed us to view our work in multiple ways and to perfect the experience before our strict one-day installation.
