Throughout Sensing Nature I explored how innovative illustration can be used to create interactive environments. Inspired by a collaboration of innovative illustrators, I wanted to use graphic arts as a tool to entice, and engage my audience, in the form of paper cut.
Sensing Nature is an interactive installation, designed to educate, and inform an audience. Interactive elements allow the user to be in control of their environment allowing them to explore, and learn further. Inspired by our natural surroundings, Sensing Nature is a highly detailed, fine crafted, paper cut display that explores endangered native species, and their habitats within the UK. Smaller bell jars encourage the audience to interact and engage exploring nature through sound, smell, and texture. Also individual information cards help to inform the audience, advising them on how they can act upon the subject from within their own homes.
