FOR VISITORS: a fresh take on classic data visualization, using a simulated adventure ride, physical 3-dimensional objects, and AR time/space travel as the narrative lens.
FOR VISITORS: Potential for scale, though we are focused on biological & evolutionary changes, the museum could use the same technology to study human cultural changes over the course of history, or any other micro-macro exploration of the natural world
