Thomas Cole National Historic Site Digital Game - Use Mock Up (Computer Program)
Title: Thomas Cole National Historic Site Digital Game - Use Mock Up
Author: Thomas Cole National Historic Site
Abstract: The project created a user mock up of the digital experience module exploring Thomas Cole’s “A River in the Catskills” painting. The mock up allows users to click and “enter” a painting using parallax technology, converse with historic figures, and select different conversation responses that bring users to different outcomes. The historic figures and conversations are based in primary source research and present diverse views on the local experience of industrialization, shedding light on the national debate of preservation vs. development that this country continues to grapple with today.
