Art Community is an application system of MoCA Art Gallery in Shanghai. This project aims of building interaction between an art gallery and the visitors who have the some interstering. The system includes three parts: APP, public display and iteractive device.
Smart phone APP
The navigation in the bottom includes community, exhibition, personal info, friends and settings. In this app, Visitors can search information of the exhibition and artworks, view others' comments and text friends.
Every artwork has a QR code on its exhibition stand. When they are scanned by visiters, the app will jump to the information of this artwork.
Visters can view information of exhibition and other person's comments by touching the public display. These informations are displayed on screen in real time, so that visters who never download the APP can also join into the interaction.
Because of the high costs and interference of appreciation, displays should be installed in relatively inconspicuous, safe, but touchable sites. According to these concerns, I set two displays in the red areas of the building models.
- MoCA Light Spot
- MoCA Light Spot
MoCA is this art gallery's name. MoCA Light Spot is a game based on an interactive device set in the space.
One user stands on pedals on the ground, controlling the direction of the light spot's movement.
The light spot keeps moving up if no one stands on pedals.
Once left pedal is pushed down, light spot moves left, vice versa.
If the light spot moves out of the MoCA labyrinth, user loses.
When spot moves from start to end without running off, user wins.
- Scores and Gifts
Visitors could scan the QR code of MoCA Light Spot to strat game, and the scores will be recorded in their personal accounts. The scores can be accumulated. When visitors win the first game, the light spot will be reset and speed up. Also the score bonus after winning will increase. Visitors can exchange their scores into gifts at gallery's souvenir shop. The more scores, the higher the gifts value.
