Simplicity 1506 Waistcoat - front

Simplicity 1506 Waistcoat

Simplicity 1506 Waistcoat: Big and Tall Boy's and Men's Waistcoats Sewing Pattern. I made view B in Scottish tweed in size 2XL This is a very straight forward pattern. The only major change I made was with the interfacing. It seamed a bit odd to me that the pattern called for interfacing for the whole front of the piece. I considered that interfacing with tweed would make the waistcoat very stiff, so I left it out. I was very glad I did.
Magazine Visualisation

Magazine Visualisation

This post looks at the twelfth of the visualization types created for the MeSch museum post-visit visualization tool. Click here for overview. The Curators at Museo della Guerra frequently create custom paper magazines to accompany their exhibitions. Any exhibition might have multiple booklets on different aspects of the same event, e.g. for an exhibition on WWI they might have 3 different books; the first on sanitary conditions, a second on daily fife and a third on the assault & bombing.
Photo album visualisation

Photo Album Visualisation

This post looks at the eleventh of the visualization types created for the MeSch museum post-visit visualization tool. Click here for overview. This technology for this visualisation is based on the HTML5 canvas flip book demo 20 Things I Learned. Each point of interest for the physical exhibition will have an image associated with it. This book display all of these images and their titles. Images for the points the user has seen in the physical space are displayed clearly.

Passbook Visualisation

Personalised Lego Character from Photo

While investigating methods of creating personalised characters for online site users we explored the idea of using a photograph of a person to act as the basis for a Lego person.
Animal Path Visualisation

Animal Path Visualisation

This post looks at the eighth of the visualization types created for the MeSch museum post-visit visualization tool. Click here for overview. This visualisation is loosely based around a French paper; Veron, E., Levasseur, M.: Ethnographie de l’exposition, Paris, Bibliothèque Publique d’Information, Centre Georges Pompidou. This Ethnographic study proposed that visitors movements in a museum could be compared to the behaviour of four "typical" animals. They used observational techniques to classify visitors as ANT, FISH, BUTTERFLY or GRASSHOPPER. For meSch we wanted to experiment with this idea and consider how such roles could be assigned to visitors using computational methods applied to the visitors log.

Map Visualisation

This post looks at the seventh of the visualization types created for the MeSch museum post-visit visualization tool. Click here for overview. This map is a combination of static and dynamic content. The background layer is uploaded and configured by the curator. The curator must upload a background map image and drag the points of interest to the appropriate locations on the map. Once the curator is happy with their basic map they can flag the visualisation as public.

Museum visit grid visualisation is a series of images in a grid that each provide a gateway to additional information on the user visit

Grid Visualisation

This is the third of a series of posts looking at each of the different visualization types created for the MeSch museum post-visit visualization tool. Click here for overview. This experimental visualisation was inspired by a page on the Wonderkamers website.

Bubbles Visualisation

This is the fourth of a series of posts looking at each of the different visualization types created for the MeSch museum post-visit visualization tool. Click here for overview. The bubbles visualisation is an abstract interactive illustration. A personalised character (similar to the personalised character detailed here) sits at the centre of a number of rings of bubbles (discs). The number of rings is determined by how many perspectives were available at the physical exhibition. For example at the Atlantikwall exhibition in Museon in Den Haag it was possible to experience the offering from one of 3 perspective; a German soldier, a civilian and/or a civil servant. Therefore the bubbles visualisation for this will have 3 rings of bubbles.
