Video highlights from the apps (36-minute version)

This montage provides a sampling of some of the video media in the Fort Vancouver Mobile apps. This app is much more than just a video distribution system, but these videos show the variety of content, from expositional segments to new journalism to those intended to prompt the development of interactive narratives.

Fort Vancouver Mobile's permanent exhibit debuts!

While I was in Victoria this weekend, exhibit designer Lee Pisarek and research assistant Josh Wagner were presenting the debut of Fort Vancouver Mobile's permanent exhibit at the Fort Vancouver National Historic Site's visitors center on National GO (Get Outdoors) Day. This exhibit, funded by a Clark County Commissioners' Historical Promotion Grant, is a way for us to share the video objects of the mobile app in a fun and playful way for people who might not necessarily download the app and use it.

The idea is that the video pieces can be played and shared at the visitors center, and some people might download the free app because of those, and other people, who might not want to use the mobile version, still can get some of the benefits of the media produced in this project. This exhibit also is designed so people might want to sit on the barrels, or stand next to the pelts, and take their picture with this scene in the background.

Volunteer Lee Pisarek designed and constructed this exhibit, with help from Fort Vancouver staff members. Thank you so very much, Lee! ... I will be back in town and plan to stop by the exhibit later this week, and will post more images of it then.
