Light Up the Night
Children's Hospital Arts & Healing Program
A large-scale digital activation to help donors light up the night.
The chair of the Children’s Hospital of Minnesota Arts & Healing board asked me to create an installation experience for a fundraiser they were holding, following the Starry Night theme. Using kiosks at the event, donors were invited to buy a star that they could add to the virtual sky being projected in the event space- the more money they donated, the more options they had for customizing the star! After the event, the donor-created virtual stars were brought to Children’s Hospital in South Minneapolis as part of a Kinect experience for the patients and staff at the hospital.
This was a labor of love drawing on many skills. The original concept was repurposed from a project I had done a year earlier for a holiday website. In addition to leading the overall creative direction and concept of the installations, I also build out all of the prototypes and final applications, and collaborated with a designer on the kiosk interface.
