August 15, 2016 Art Ecology Education 1

Interactive Multimedia students Tyler Fischbach, Jennifer Natole,Thomas Garzon, Sean Walsh from Minnesota State University Moorhead spent a semester in studio dreaming, designing and developing an interactive tool for The Fargo Project website. The challenge: create an interactive, animated graphic to show a map of World Garden Commons as s wet and dry basin with ideal prairie grasses and plants. Their resulting graphic maps the basin as it fills, highlights ecological ares and describes the environmental advantages wet and dry species of plants provide.

Interactive Multimedia students design an element to show changes in the basin
