Viper Vertex has recently created an interactive electronic multimedia
exhibit to provide visitors an exploratory glimpse into the unique
planetary phenomena of SOLAR AND LUNAR ECLIPSES.
eclipse exhibit is not a kiosk. There is no mouse, no keyboard.
Visitors simply walk around the exhibit space, stepping on pictures
in the floor to "create an eclipse". Visitors may access
information in a creative, fun and exciting environment. This exhibit
engages all ages of visitors in a cooperative participatory experience.
Learn about eclipses while playing with and creating varied combinations
of visuals, sounds, narration and information: science, mythologies,
history, art, visuals, perspectives and culture.
new ECLIPSE exhibit may be experienced at the new Chabot Space and
Science Center, Oakland, CA, where it is permanently installed.
solar eclipse is an extraordinary event that has inspired, frightened,
awed and amazed people and cultures around the world throughout
history. The science, mythology, history, and art of eclipse astronomy
is contagious and awe-inspiring." JoAnn Gillerman
