Q: How can we raise awareness of the importance of Inuit arts and culture?

A: Cultural Networks
printed poster win interactive digital overlays
York University's Center for Mobilizing Inuit Cultural Heritage approached me to design an interactive map for "Design Latitudes," an exposition at the University of Alberta.

The map shows major hotspots for Inuit culture and art across Canada, and how they relate and connect to each other. Each image is linked to a digital piece which can be viewed by pointing a smartphone at it.

The goal of the piece was to raise awareness of the importance of Inuit art and culture i our lives, and how it can influence how we look at other areas of life such as nature and sustainability.


The poster was one of many pieces shown at the University of Alberta's exposition on Inuit art.


Viewers were invited to download the free Aurasma app, which allowed them to view more content on their smartphone. This technology has the power to overlay the content right on the poster with augmented reality.
