MOLD; A Digital Petri Dish Playground


James E. Booth Hall - 1320

MOLD is a playground inside a giant digital petri dish, offering you the chance to engage with mold in ways you never thought possible. Imagine stepping up to our magical digital tabletop interface, where you can play to your heart's content and breathe life into the fantastical mold-like visuals. This project is the result of a collaborative effort between seven designers and three developers, who poured their hearts into crafting this immersive experience during the Spring 2024 semester at RIT. Our aim with MOLD is to transform something conventionally mundane into an adventure brimming with wonder, excitement, and beauty. As you explore our exhibit, you'll uncover fascinating facts about mold in a fun and engaging manner. By the end of your visit, we hope you'll depart with a wide smile and a newfound sense of joy and wonder. So come and join us, and let's dive into the unexpected magic of MOLD!
