Explorers at the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery play in an immersive sound exhibit where they collaboratively create sound compositions by moving through ripples of projected light. Mediums: Projection Mapping, Sound Design, Interactive Technology. Approx 150 square feet.
The Fort Collins Museum of Discovery had a few overarching goals that were essential in the overall design of SOUNDSCAPE. First, to activate a previously dead space in the museum that had become static and stale, and second, as the museum's name implies, it was imperative that the installation evoke a sense of discovery and open play. SOUNDSCAPE archives these goals by creating an immersive, living, and interactive environment that is responsive and inviting.
Members of Alt Ethos met with the stakeholders at the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery and kicked off the project with a day of collaborative discovery and definition. Through design observations, interviews, and even playing games, Alt Ethos was able to define a project that was collaborative to its core - in its design, fabrication, execution, and theme.

Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
