Lubbock - TTU FutureScapes Kiosk


The TTU Humanities Center's interactive kiosk features a "you tell us" exhibit of futuristic images past and present. In a gaming mode, the exhibit, called FutureScapes, invites users to weigh in on how they see and understand images and then offers immediate information about how an individual user's responses stack up against users-to-date in the aggregate. The images were selected and program designed by doctoral students in Michael Faris's Rhetoric and Technical Communication summer (2016) seminar.

The kiosk is currently in the Lubbock Preston Smith Library Learning Resource Center (LRC).
