I worked with Gallagher & Associates' UX Department on the ideation and production of six interactive media installations that are located at the Witte Science Museum of San Antonio, Texas.

Witte Science Museum of San Antonio

Gallagher & Associates created a dynamic vision for the historic Witte Museum that integrates dramatic immersive visitor experiences within new and expanded museum spaces. The New Witte blends the beloved dioramas and historic collections of the Witte’s past with immersive spaces, multi-media films, and interactives. The result is a thoroughly engaging and theatrical space that tells the story of the True Texas, millions, thousands and hundreds of years ago to today.

Deliverables

I was involved in user testing and design iterations. My focus was to observe the users interactions and interpret findings in order to iterate upon the interactive media installations.

 I was also involved in the creation of user testing documentation for the client.
