The Modem interactive display.
Martello produced their interactive elements in co-ordination with the Museum's Graphics department.
The Email Virsuses installion taught the user to defend their servers with Anti-viruses.
The Life Online gallery.
The Life Online permanent gallery explores the social, technological and cultural impact of the Internet. Martello produced six of the 15 touchscreen interactives; they simultaneously explain the workings of various aspects of the Internet, and entertain them with multiplayer games.
Martello took the very basic client brief for each and brainstormed, art directed, programmed, user tested, debugged and installed the interactives.
“Some interactives are inspired, however. Destroy The Network is a sophisticated game that teaches you how resilient distributed computer networks are, by inviting you to destroy a series of them, each more complex than the last. Built using a multi-touch table (which a whole group can use at once), it’s one of the most effective uses of this technology I’ve seen in a gallery.”
