Over a fifteen year period working with Discovery World Museum, I was involved with the creation of over two hundred exhibit stations in nearly a dozen different exhibits relating to health, electricity, gyroscopes, lasers, radio, observation, computers, video, simple machines, haptics, robotics, and much more
Later, working with a local trade show exhibit firm, I led the development of a half-million dollar interactive exhibit for an international manufacturer of construction equipment, highlighting the benefits of their hydraulic systems over those of their competition.
Story is the core of exhibitry. The ability to get to the essence of a concept, relate that to the visitor, open lines of thought and consideration; it’s all story telling at heart. A successful exhibit begins with finding the story, and then developing ways to tell that story, using available technology and art. All of the tools of a good story teller contribute to the development of an effective exhibit.
