I was responsible for the overall art direction and design of the physical installation and design of the donation screens.
Playing on the name of 'The Powerhouse' we crafted a message 'Power Us' through the use of flashing neon, designed to 'flicker on and off', attracting attention of passerby's. This message was displayed through a neon-lined plinth with a touch screen, placed in a prominent area of the venue in front of the physical installation to create connection.
When users progressed through the screens, they are brought on a neon-filled journey of the Powerhouse history - explaining how much they give to the public and why you should help power them. Users can select small amounts to donate, or enter their own larger amount. Then, users simply tap on the Square payment system and watch as the physical Powerhouse installation infront of them responds to the donation and comes to life.
After a donation, a connected series of lights flow from the donation screen through to the 3m long neon sign on the wall. The sign then changes from the 'Power Us' state and lights up the full 'Brisbane Powerhouse', dancing and flashing a series of colours.
