Yorkshire’s Jurassic World, The Yorkshire Museum
Yorkshire’s Jurassic World is a major new exhibition designed by Bright White Ltd for York Museums Trust. It tells the remarkable story of Yorkshire's dramatically changing landscape and of the creatures that inhabited it millions of years ago.
Digital augmentation can help us to find meaning in difficult-to-interpret fossil specimens and within the gallery can be found two ColliderCases, interpreting very different objects, each with their own display challenges.
The second contains the footprints of a two-legged therapod. The ColliderCase places a life size holographic dinosaur into the space, stepping into the actual footprints as it walks across the trackway. The digital interpretation is object-led, but the layer of digital media really brings the trace fossil to life by creating a vignette of a time, a place and a creature.
