Atomium Escalator: Travelling through hyperspace in the Belgian tourist attraction
Earlier this year I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to co-plan, along with Anthony Price, an original digital activity for the Royal Albert Memorial Museum in Exeter.
The activity we came up with was a green screen workshop where visitors can be placed into an image of a location of their choosing, which has a connection to RAMM. The resulting picture is then printed off on 6x4 photo paper as a souvenir to take away with them.

Each image featured RAMM’s logo and its new “RAMM Explorers” branding so the activity also served as a promotional tool for the museum.
Initially it was run as a free activity for one day to prove the concept would work. It was so successful we were asked to run it again as a paid activity for three days. These three days were even more popular, with a phenomenal amount of visitor engagement and some great feedback.

Interestingly those having their picture processed were keen to watch it be composited in Photoshop, which proved to be a key component of the activity. Another unexpected result was that it was popular with visitors of all ages.
