Interactive Cultural Art Exhibit consists of two experiences, Black History Radio and Bachata Hero.
Black History Radio uses an antique style radio as an audio based time machine. Users can tune into 8 moments in Black History by 4 great men and women, respectively, spanning from 1947 to 2008. Internally, a Sony Spresense microcontroller controls the output of the radio. Each year has 2-4 clips with artificial white noise in between. Complementing this art installation is an antique inspired newspapers clipping providing more information.
Bachata Hero is a custom made Guitar Hero based experience inspired by Bachata, a Latin American music genre originating from the Dominican Republic. Made as an homage to my roots as a first generation Dominican-American, Bachata Hero features a custom built façade themed to a traditional country side house from the Dominican Republic. Five Bachata songs in total will be playable on a acoustic style wooden guitar. The goal of this exhibit is to use a familiar gateway like Guitar Hero to introduce Dominican culture.
