Fog is sometimes used to demonstrate nature and natural phenomenon for education or entertainment purposes. Since our fog effects use pure water, they can mimic nearly anything to represent steam, smoke, mist, fog or other floating opaque effects. In this instance, our fog effects systems are used to develop a vortex in a children’s museum exhibit.
|Challenge||Demonstrate natural phenomenon in a controlled environment while constructing interactive elements for a more participatory environment.|
|Solution||Using pure water fog we are able to create a variety of controlled effects that are safe and fun for children and adults alike.|
|Benefits||To create a fog effect requires water and minimal power so there are no chemical re-fills, messy clean-ups or downtime due to fluid re-orders.|
The branch of neuroscience that studies the formation of memories is relatively new. However, it has opened a Pandora’s Box of implications in the world of learning and development. Even in adults, and especially in the case of children, the more attention you command, the more interaction you create, the more resilient the memories. And when you’re trying to communicate a passion or interest across cultural and generational lines, making best use of cutting edge science is to your advantage.
Participatory environments have defined the research and concepts in current museum and exhibit design trends. Once an industry that catered only to the academic elite, more museum curators, registrars and exhibit designers are trying to spark inspiration and understanding rather than cater to an already well established interest. With a changing audience comes a changing approach, one that is driving more and more people through museum doors.
Koolfog’s use of pure water for steam, smoke, fog and mist effects allows exhibit designer and museum directors to integrate into almost any setting. The high-pressure system atomizes water particles so they are quickly evaporated and have no harmful effects from exposure. With professional collaboration and solid design and project management skills, Koolfog can assist in any project.
For children, there lies a quandary between preservation and participation. Koolfog will meet you at the crossroads. Creating an environment that commands attention and captures the imagination while preserving objects of the past and maintaining a controlled environment doesn’t have to be impossible, or even difficult. Koolfog’s high-pressure, pure water fog / smoke /steam / mist effects can recreate natural phenomenon for any educational or informational program that will speak with authenticity and reverence.
The future is ours to create as we wish. Investing in creative measures to solve age-old problems is part of what makes life interesting and part of what makes our jobs at Koolfog sustainable. As the museum industry changes to incorporate a greater audience base and deliver information through entirely different means, we are here to help create the exact kind of end user experience you desire. Fog used as an interactive element across uses stretches, boundaries, expands horizons and, we hope along with you, inspires more children (and at that, more of their guardians) into the nature of respect, admiration and awe for the world we have and live within.
