  4. 4. CFD 10 Years of Connections PROJECT HIghlight We wanted the audience to feel as though they could have their own experience reflected in the project. Description The red and blue rectangles are responsive surfaces. When the year and institution tokens are placed into these slots, RFID tags in the tokens trigger responses on the screen. For example, if an audience member uses the token from 2003 and pairs it with the image associated with St Michael’s Hospital the screen will change to show an image that reflects the amount of people who were new that year from that institution. It will also bring up a graph that showcases that particular institution and its number of connections with the CFD each year.
  5. 5. CFD 10 Years of Connections PROJECT HIghlight: institutions Description The audience was invited to choose both the year they joined the CFD and the institution they came through. These two events triggered responses on screen that allowed the audience to see their institution in relation to the rest and also to see the growth each year of the organization. The dates were straight forward but the institutions had picture clues rather than names. This encouraged the audience to work together to figure out the institutions. It also enabled them to open up and start conversations with each other about their roles and experiences with the CFD.
  6. 6. CFD 10 Years of Connections PROJECT HIghlight: The teachers, learners & staff The core of the CFD is the people involved with it. Description We incorporated them through a series of rotating images of admin, teachers and learners through out the year. The audience really enjoyed seeing familiar faces.
  7. 7. CFD 10 Years of Connections PROJECT HIghlight: The Education & its Impact Measuring the impact of the CFD was important for this initiative. Description Using quotes from all key stakeholders allowed us to showcase the great work that the CFD has done for the past 10 years. These quotes rotated along with the photos to give a personalized experience to the audience.
  8. 8.
