MIDDLEBURY COLLEGE

Middlebury College approached Local Projects to design and develop an interactive media wall showcasing the athletic history at the college. The tradition of athletics at Middlebury play a very important role in the community, and date back to when the college was founded in the 1800’s. Through the piece users can explore over 6,000 unique images, spanning over 100 years.

TWO MODES FOR TWO PURPOSES

The Middlebury College Athletic History Wall consists of two modes. The first mode is the Passive Mode, in which the wall cycles through immersive full screen images with a clickable timeline in which the user can enter any decade in the college's history that they choose. This allows the user to have a glimpse into the history of sports at Middlebury without having to interact with the wall.

The Active Mode consists of 4 vertical grids, one for each user. The user can then navigate through over 100 years of historical sports photography and ephemera, organized by decade, category, and content tag.
