The student's journey of experience designing for the museum space of Shivappa Nayaka Palace started in May 2021. He has always been curious about the experiences which can be created through the use of psychology and technology.
He wanted to take up a real-life project which will be executed in the near future. He aimed to get exposure to how things work during the ideation and execution of a project. The student was interested in knowing how professionals from various disciplines coordinate with each other and officially execute a project. Hence he applied to many design firms and his patience was rewarded by the great opportunity that came from the interaction design firm Digital Jalebi (DJIS), Bangalore.
The project ‘Restoration and adaptive re-use of Shivappa Nayaka Palace’ was initiated by Shivamogga Smart City Limited (SSCL) and greatly supported by the Department of Archaeology, Museums and Heritage, Government of Karnataka. Digital Jalebi, Bangalore (DJIS) worked on the digitisation of the museum and GN Heritage Matters (GNHM) worked on the restoration of the palace.
When the student joined the project, the scope of work given to him by DJIS was highly focused on the spatial design aspect of the museum. But as he showed his potential, he kept receiving various responsibilities on vivid tasks such as conducting meetings with subject experts, ideating for and monitoring development of interactive installations, content creation, working on a documentary film and an animated film and much more.
During the project, the student got to meet professionals and experts from various disciplines and fields. He hopes that his work will have a lasting impact upon execution. He aims to utilise his learnings and insights from this project and take those one step forward in the upcoming opportunities which he might get.
