    ABSTRACT
    Korelashen is a publishing platform developed under PHP, MySQL and Actionscript 3.0 that allows users to administrate content and by associating it through keywords, show it to their viewers in a highly interactive fashion.
    [back to top]
    DETAILS
    The main objective Korelashen is to being able to hold information, process it through a database and deploy it to the final user by way of associations (keywords) attached to each item at the moment of adding it to the system.
    In order to being able to manage and display information, Korelashen must consider three main areas; first, an administration system to add the content; second, a database and web server to store and process the information and finally, a layout to present the contents to the viewer.
    The platforms main target audience is people, organizations or companies that need to showcase specific content to their clients, this content would depend on their requirements and needs.
    In order for Korelashen to succeed, the processing of the information is essential, this because all content that is added to the platform will necessarily be divided by a keyword, such as the date it was added, by alphabetical order and every other way available according to the content; these keywords are basic for the system and for the displaying of the information to work properly.
    In terms of design, the scope of this project at the moment is to present the user one theme and some editing capabilities; such has changing color from titles, subtitles, links and navigation items.
    As a final approach, the platform will allow the administrators to have the power of allowing registered viewers to edit, contribute and modify contents in order to generate collaborative information.

    STATEMENT OF INTEREST
    I have been a freelance web designer for six years and one of my biggest goals is to be able to lead my own studio and from there start building products that embrace everything that I know so far.
    In this path of learning I came across web applications such as Wordpress, Joomla and other publishing platforms or Content Management Systems that have allowed me to create websites that are easy to use for clients and for me as an administrator.
    Although these tools are very effective to display and manage information, for me, interactivity in terms of data visualization is an area that has not been covered by any of the most popular platforms that try to develop in this area lack in several ways (see competitor analysis).
    Through the use of technologies such as Flash, database managed content and Actionscript tools the possibility of sorting, arranging and displaying large amount of content allows for interactive data visualization, which will benefit the users by providing them with an easy and rapid access to the information while still maintaining a visual route that would allow them to contextualize and understand their specific queries.
    I would like to take advantage of this project to create a product that delivers information in well thought out, clear, well designed way. Emulating the best characteristics of popular platforms and adding what I believe will be an easy to use, fun and efficient way for the viewer to understand the website’s message.
    Although this platform is able to hold any kind of content, in this specific project I will use Greek mythology as a main theme, mainly because is an area with plenty of information and also because is a subject that I like a lot.
    Lastly - as a general benefit of the site – the project attempts to explore a “wiki-like” approach, where visitors will have the possibility to modifying and add content. This in the hopes of adding an option for the system to work as an educational platform, thus, the spirit of the Web 2.0 comes to play in terms of allowing the visitor to organize her own construction of information and to apprehend what is useful to them.

    FLOW CHART
    The following flow chart depicts how the content is added to the platform, how it is processed by the database and how it is finally delivered to the viewer who has the ability to modify it when available.

    PROYECT INSPIRATION
    {http://www.puerta121.com/canm/small/pro_ins01.png}
    WORDPRESS is the most popular blogging platform available today. Millions of websites are powered with this application; this has enabled it to gather designers, developers and contributors from many fields thus creating an always growing community that implements new features every day.
    Though thought out has a blogging platform, Wordpress can be customized to became more powerful due to a huge library of plug-ins.
    On the other hand it open source philosophy allows for great diversity in terms of Design, where a community of Themes makers have contributed greatly to the popularity of the application.
    One of the most powerful features of Wordpress is the backend administration; it allows for the managements of not only text entries, but also pictures, video and audio. It also allows the administrator to manage several users, assigning them different roles or restrictions that include being able to modify content or simply moderate or write comments.
    The Korelashen will use a Wordpress Administration System approach to manage the contents added to the system.
    {http://www.puerta121.com/canm/small/pro_ins02.png}
    WIKIPEDIA has become the paradigm of user generated content from its creation on 2001. Eight years later, with millions of users and visitor everyday there is no discussion about the effects the free encyclopedia has had on the way Internet is viewed today.
    The strongest feature of the application is the amount of content it holds, in different languages and the constant updates that the same users apply to the information.
    This large amount of content is hard to manage in terms of usability, though finding specific content is easy, once the user starts following the array of links and paths available, is easy to lose track of the main subject.
    The Koreleshen finds inspiration on Wikipedia as a source of content created by users and managed by administrators, but in a lower scale in terms of scope. Though in theory it could hold has much information as the client requires, the main use of it would be for specific subjects and the relationships between its parts.
    {http://www.puerta121.com/canm/small/pro_ins03.png}
    FLARE is an Actionscript Library created for data visualization.
    The possibilities for showing data are very well thought and functional, though specific knowledge is required for common use, the library is not for everyone.
    The library allows for content generated in databases, XML and content created at runtime.
    Koreleshen will also attempt to use a specifically created library in order to sort through the content and display it in different ways.

    Project OverviewProject Overview
    Abstract
    Hubble Space Telescope: 20 Years of Discoveries will be an interactive flash installation piece that helps to inform and educate the public about the Hubble Space Telescope and its most significant discoveries. Users of all ages (children and adults) will be able to interact with the installation in a space/science museum setting. The installation will feature a novel way for users to interact with the piece that will engage, entertain, and hopefully inspire them to want to learn more about the universe.
    Details
    I. Venue
    “A museum is a permanent institution in the service of society and of its development, open to the public, which acquires, conserves, researches, communicates and exhibits the tangible and intangible heritage of humanity and its environment, for the purposes of education, study, and enjoyment.”
    International Council of Museums
    The first public museum opened in Europe during the Age of the Enlightenment in the 18th century. Museums first started out as collections of art, natural objects, rare curiosities, and artifacts. Over the years, museums started to specialize in order to organize the vast amounts of knowledge about different fields. This project focuses on addressing the needs of Science and Space Museums, but this list could expand in the future.
    II. Current Exhibit Methodology
    Science museums and technology centers focus on scientific discoveries and their history. To explain complicated concepts, a combination of techniques are used, including, interactive programs, visualizations and demonstrations. Science museums, in particular, may contain planetariums in order to educate the public on topics in astronomy. Below is a brief summary of current exhibit types that are generally used:
    Science Museum Exhibit Types
    CLASSIFICATION
    TYPE
    EXAMPLE
    Non-Interactive
    Display
    Static Art piece/display
    Animatronic
    Includes robotic parts (no interaction)
    Poster
    Informational poster
    Film (IMAX-immersive)
    A film about a particular topic
    Planetarium Show (immersive)
    A dome show about astronomy
    Interactive
    Mechanical
    Includes moving mechanical parts (requires human interaction)
    Interactive Display
    Information kiosk
    Sensor Based
    Mounted sensor triggers an action upon detection of a visitor
    III. Trend: Making Science Accessible (Experience Design)
    One of the primary goals of Science and Space Museums is to make information accessible. There are various ways to accomplish this listed above. According to Hilde S. Hein (The Museum In Transition: A Philosophical Perspective), rather than displaying objects, museums are shifting to providing experiences for their visitors. One example is immersive media.
    The platform for this installation will be a display screen from floor to six feet in height (as of 2/22/2009). The goal is to create a display that will present the content in a format that is life sized. By presenting the content and imagery in a large scale, the viewer will be immersed in the presentation and be able to gain a deeper appreciation of the imagery.
    To interact with the display, the use of sensors will be employed to track the user’s motion over the display. This will free up their hands so that the line between reality and the content is blurred and thereby contribute to the feeling of being immersed in the content. Using sensors would also lend flexibility when considering the size and will provide a novel approach for interacting with the piece.
    IV. Content Approach
    According to Steven Allison-Bunnell (One Size Does Not Fit All: Learning Style, Play, and On-line Interactives, 2007), there are four primary learning approaches and modalities:
    -Creative
    -Intellectual
    -Practical
    -Social
    Allison-Bunnell recommends a combination of approaches for each mode. For the intellectual approach, he recommends that information be presented in a reference-type format. Since the installation for this project will be in a museum setting, and focus on a specific topic, the intellectual approach seems most appropriate. The user will be presented with various pages, and will be able to drill down to get further details, as well as have reference information in a predictable location on the page.
    The primary sections will be:
    1. Hubble Top 10 Countdown
    2. Zooming in on a specific object and learning about its features (i.e., Orion Nebula)
    3. A gallery of images (e.g., galaxies)
    The viewer would be able to navigate to each section by using a form of menu navigation.
    Section 1 would be a presentation, with the ability for the viewer to jump to different parts (forward/back).
    Section 2 would require more user involvement as they navigate to different features of a selected celestial object.
    Section 3 would allow users to “play” with the content. Possible features include: allowing the viewer to scale the content, allowing them to
    “stack” images in different orders, allowing them to “toss” the images across the display.
    Statement of Interest
    Ever since I was young, I've been fascinated by science and astronomy. It was always amazing for me to think that millions of light years away, a new star was being born, or a new planet taking shape, or even that a black hole was swallowing everything that crossed its event horizon - the point of no return!
    As I got older, I was amazed by what I learned in my science courses. My favorite part of my assignments was taking complex concepts and drawing images and diagrams that helped to illustrate the concepts. As time passed, life went on, I went away to college, and started my career in the software industry.
    In recent years, I’ve become more conscious of the state of the planet, ecologically, culturally, politically, and spiritually. I’ve realized that this could be an overwhelming world and that it can be easy for one to become disconnected since we’re constantly being pulled in many directions by our careers and other obligations. While all this is happening we’re bombarded with violence on television, witnessing suffering, injustice and pain in other countries, and living under the constant stress since 9/11.
    In the midst of all this, I decided to reconnect with my primary interests in science and astronomy. I started to attend planetarium shows and to participate in telescope viewings. The sense of curiosity and wonder began to fill my being once again. By spending lots of time observing the universe and stripping away all of the other distractions, I started to get a sense that we’re all inter-connected. Like the stars in the heavens, we too are made of the basic elements found in stardust. We may have a lot more in common, than we’re different.
    My goal with this installation is to help to convey that message to audiences of all ages, but especially to young minds.
