In conjunction with the Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery, the New Media Studio has developed two multimedia presentations to accompany “Reflections from the Heart: Photographs by David Seymour." In an audio/visual podcast, curator Tom Beck narrates a personal tour of exhibit highlights. The podcast may be conveniently accessed through Apple iTunes or directly at http://www.umbc.edu/oit/newmedia/rss/seymour.xml. For more information on UMBC podcasts click here.
The second presentation is a multimedia tour featuring commentary by Tom Beck plus ten images from the exhibit. Viewers may explore the photos in detail using a zoom fuction. The presentation is a Flash module produced using a new authoring tool called Pachyderm (http://www.pachyderm.org/). As part of our participation in the New Media Consortium, the New Media Studio has been involved in beta-testing Pachyderm over the past year. Originally developed by San Francisco MOMA for creating kiosk presentations, Pachyderm is currently under development as a web-based Flash authoring tool. The program allows instructors can quickly create presentations through a forms-based web interface. For more information, contact Bill Shewbridge (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the Studio.
