FINAL DAY: Video Editing
Posted 5 Apr 2019 18:58
Today our team began to put together our finalised interactive digital exhibition pages! As you can see above we have considered how we would like our pages to look as well as function. We used the MERL website along with others to inspire the design, especially when looking at the pop-out windows in our layouts. This is one of four of our case study exhibitions which are now all being tied together to create the final collaborative website proposal for tomorrow.

Day 1 Personal Poser
To get to know each other better and see what styles people use for laying out information, each student produced their own personal poster.

What is Digital Exhibition?
Digital exhibitions are showcases of information which have no physical boundary of space. Often referred to as online or virtual exhibitions, digital exhibitions are typically hosted on the internet.
Digital exhibitions can be made for a variety of reasons, some of which are;
- Being able to connect with a larger audience.
By eliminating the need for visitors to spend time and money travelling to a specific location, the information becomes much more accessible to the public.
- Being able to showcase more information.
Without the physical constraints of a room or plane, organisers are free to share more information and work, meaning the audience can learn and gain more from the experience.
- Avoiding the risk of damage to sensitive and historical items.
Often with physical exhibitions, expensive or fragile items can be used in displays. This can often come with expensive moving costs and high security levels. With the use of digital exhibitions, pieces can be captured and shared without the risk of damage.
- Lower running costs.
By removing the costs of renting a physical space, having employees, insuring items, etc, digital exhibitions can be very cost effective in the long run.
The design of a digital exhibition is like that of a physical one. The content, visuals/graphics and technology used is combined to create a positive learning experience for the audience. A key part of designing digital exhibitions is understanding the best methods in which you use to present your information, and overall, what you are trying to get your audience to understand.

Over the last few years he has been making an ongoing study of Didcot Power Station and its place in the landscape. He has a PhD in experimental physics and has worked at large scientific research infrastructures in Europe, Asia and North America. He will be giving us a lecture on the post war infrastructure and nature from a director's perspective, and use Didcot Power Station, one of his most significant researches as a case syudy.

Study Trip: Science and Industry Museum
During the start of the events period, we will visit the Science and Industry Museum as a study trip. The museum exhibits industry as well as infrastructure during the industrial ages, getting us familiarized with the background. The visit to an actual physical exhibition is as well aiming to stimulate ideas for online exhibition narrative as well as user’s interface experience. At the same time of collecting background information, the difference between a digital and exhibition could also be explored.

Our Collaborator: MERL
The museum uses their diverse collection to explore how the skills and experiences of farmers and craftspeople, past and present, can help shape our lives now and into the future. They work alongside rural people, local communities and specialist researchers to create displays and activities that engage with important debates about the future of the countryside to all our lives.
During the events period, we are aiming to produce a new online exhibition for our collaborator, exploring the landscape of post war period in the countryside. Archival materials collected and reproduced by the research methods students are all based on information and collections from MERL.

The Landscape and Infrastructure Digital Conference is a continuation from the previous Research Methods. Some of these produced materials will be used for the digital exhibition during events. These materials will soon be exhibited.
