The Laing is home to an impressive collection of art and sculpture and its exhibition programme is renowned for bringing the biggest names in historic, modern and contemporary art to the North East. The Northern Spirit, is part of a major new £1.06 million development in the gallery. The permanent exhibition celebrates the achievements of artists, manufacturers and makers from the North East of England.
For Centre Screen Productions Ltd, I created three touchscreen programs which pull in information about the works and the artists from a database. This database was also fully updateable. The display also showcases local people’s films and stories.
A fourth exhibit on a 52" touchscreen table allows the visitor to zoom into a map to see photographs, submitted by locals, associated with the various locations, also updateable with new submissions.
