THE EXHIBIT AT LEBANON VALLEY COLLEGE HAS BEEN TAKEN DOWN, LATE IN THE SPRING OF 2016. THE APPS STILL FUNCTION AND ARE STILL AVAILABLE, BUT THE BEACON TECHNOLOGY IS NO LONGER FUNCTIONAL BECAUSE THE EXHIBIT HAS BEEN TAKEN DOWN. The Android version is discontinued.
As Lebanon Valley College celebrates its 150th anniversary and completes a major campus master plan, the time seems propitious to reflect on its architectural past and the possibilities of its envisioned future. This exhibition presents architectural plans and models designed by students in the LVC Reimagined course taught by Dr. Grant Taylor, LVC associate professor of art history, which realizes one vision of that future. Students in Taylor’s spring Curatorial Projects course have helped to design the exhibit’s installation. In addition, an overview of LVC's architectural history will include rarely exhibited vintage plans and photographs from the LVC archive and fine art collection, as well as artistic reflections by current and past students.
Apps allow an additional exploration of "LVC Reimagined." The iOS App (iPhone, iPad) functions with iOS 7 and up; the Apple TV app functions with the fourth-generation (2015) Apple TV and requires a TV set or monitor with HDMI input. These apps are now available on the appropriate (Apple) app store. The Apple TV version must be downloaded to your Apple TV. An Android version is now also available here. Download from this site, and allow installation from unrecognized source. The app will soon be available from the Google Play store. The iOS and Android apps sense the visitor's nearness to a particular display in the gallery and invite the visitor to explore that display. This feature requires location services and bluetooth. The second version of these apps includes two video clips for Matt Eshbach, "
future Learning Space," and Grant Taylor, "Curatorial Process." Tap the screen to begin the video. The apps are copyright © 2016 Lebanon Valley College, and were developed by Jay Martin Anderson, Franklin & Marshall College.
The mobile apps will sense when the visitor approaches the exhibit and invite the visitor to launch the app. Thereafter, the mobile device will sense the visitor's nearness to a particular display. The visitor can always move between displays by swiping left or right (iPhone, iPad) or by using the left and right buttons (Android devices). Each of the seven displays is accompanied by the remarks of the artist. Please use earbuds or earphones when in the gallery. The Apple TV app shows a menu of the displays, and the viewer can choose any one. The viewer can also tap the right or left side of the Siri remote to move from one display to another. The second version of the Apple TV app shows the videos for Eshbach and Taylor instead of a still image.
