Harry Ransom Center Collaboration

During the 2011-2012 academic year, the viz. group collaborated with the Harry Ransom Center on a variety of projects. We had a ton of fun writing blog posts on current and upcoming exhibitions, including The Greenwich Village Bookshop: A Portal to Bohemia; Banned, Burned, Seized, and Censored; and The King James Bible: Its History and Influence. We were also extremely interested in the upcoming exhibit on Norman Bel Geddes, the Center's current web exhibitions, and the David Foster Wallace Symposium held at the Center in early April.

As part of our work with the Center, we put QR codes up in the exhibition space in order to link museum artifacts to web content. But we also thought we should interlink the content itself and make an interactive experience out of "touring" the exhibitions and our blog. In order to do so, we created image maps where users are directed to a variety of webpages (including viz. posts) if they click on images or portions of images. For instance, in the image map screencapped below, each image on the Center's etched windows links to supplementary material related to that image. The original image map also links, through the images of flags on the Center's facade, to additional content about exhibitions.
