Russ and I were meeting today to design the user experience for Hollow and we came across Bear 71. What we found interesting was the interactive topographical map with it’s rich audio and data visualizations. You can even turn your webcam on and become part of the map. Experience Bear 71 here.
A little about the project:
“Jeremy Mendes and Leanne Allison’s poignant interactive documentary about a bear in the Canadian Rockies illuminates the way humans engage with wildlife in the age of networks, satellites, and digital surveillance. Audiences from around the world can use their smartphones to become part of an interactive forest environment rich with bears, cougars, sheep, deer, and people as they follow an emotional story of a grizzly bear tagged and monitored by Banff National Park rangers.”
