Riverside Clubhouse

Interactive Display for Park Nicollet Shakopee Clinic

After meeting with staff at the clinic I created a design with the Minnesota River Valley theme in mind (the clinic is located close to the Minnesota River).  While taking a walk on the edge of the Minnesota River I saw and photographed many animals.  Later I wondered what it would be like if all of these animals used their special skills to work together and what would they make? They would make a club house of course, Riverside Clubhouse!

There are 4 separate animations run by 2 cranks.  The gears are visible in an open window below the scene. All moving parts are covered with safety glass.

Riverside Clubhouse is installed in the waiting room of the Park-Nicollet Shakopee Clinic.
