Virtual MLK Project
Project overviewThe Virtual MLK Project is a multi-faceted experience to celebrate the 60th anniversary of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s widely influential speech titled, “A Creative Protest.” The research presented throughout the exhibit, along with the Virtual Reality experience, provides an embodied sense of what it might have been like to sit, stand, and move around the historic sanctuary during King's speech.
Simplified Exhibit Experience
Previous Exhibit DesignIn order to properly assess what was needed in the exhibit, we developed a journey map that parsed through all the possible ways users would navigate the exhibit as it was functioning before.
Impossible to navigate without a tour guide
Lack of prominent exhibit graphics
No indicator of a beginning and end
Revising the exhibitWe streamlined the user journey and made spatial mockups (physical and digital) to iterate what the exhibit could look like.
An identity cohesive with Hunt Library’s environment
Clear wayfinding system
Revised exhibit chronology that enhanced the exhibit’s narrative
