Nianqi Zhang, Yuanyuan Wang

The Reporter is a news exploration game based on true story, guiding people to form sensible attitude towards news.


Nowadays, news are always misunderstood and forgotten by people. And cyberbullying always occurs even though people actually don't know the whole truth. To stress these problems, the project take a news happened in 2007 as an example and use a game to demonstrate how bias were shaped and changed. Players can explore news from different perspective and unlock different tools to go deeper into the news.

Conducting the painting — an integrated interactive way to appreciate paintings


In this project, we want to offer a different approach to appreciate landscape paintings.

We will create an sound interface for user to interact with a Chinese Landscape and an Landscape oil painting through the baton.

The baton will trigger the sound reflecting the elements in the paintings. Also the music will change based on the movement of the baton.

On the music shelf, users will be able to choose between 2 pages of music notes. When page selected, users will be able to interact with the painting which the page reflected.
