Today the Jobach group presented to our BCE lecturers as well as Mike from the Karangahape Road business association and other two other stake holders.
Joe created this cute logo for our group.
I believe we as a team presented well and were concise to our aim and concept idea. I am really happy with my personal presentation.
This is a summarised version of my part of the presentation:
“Our concept idea revolves around short video clips of around 20 to 40 seconds long collaborated within a paperback zine and secondly within an interactive kiosk.”
“You may have seen the interactive directories in malls or airports just like these (refer to slides) but I know you have all seen the Mc Donalds touch screen menus. Our project is to create and interactive kiosk guide to K road. This will be a information architecture map with stories of characters and business owners of the area.”
“We were hugely inspired by this project by the an Australian television company called ‘The Block : Stories from a meeting place.’ Everleigh street in Australia was a ‘run down’ aborigine community where residents were interviewed and history explained.” (I also made a short clip of a tutorial of the block application)
“We were hugely inspired by the block and their production process. Here is a quote that we feel is hugely relevant to our project and is also our motivation.
“For decades, the Block has been plagued by stories of drugs, crime and tragedy, but there have been other, richer stories as well. The goal of this production was to capture the heart and spirit of a place that cannot be summed up by one story or one narrative, but many.”
“We want to present an interactive application like the block that showcases personality of Karangahape road but also using technology to encourage Kroad to be relevant to our future.”
Here is our full google slide presentation.
Here is the final handout that I made and printed our to all the accessors.
We also gave out M&Ms to everyone viewing.
