Tompkins Center for History and Culture, Ithaca, NY

Connect audiences to meaningful history and narratives about the past, present, and future of Tompkins County.

Tessellate is providing a single source for exhibit design, fabrication, AV integration, media and software production. The intent of the exhibits at the History Center in Tompkins County is to connect audiences to meaningful history and narratives about the past, present and future of the region through the use of interactive, immersive, media and object-based experiences. For this project, Tessellate designed a flexible series of modular Story Pods to work as a physical, visual, and technical system to accommodate current and future needs of the museum. This allows for an open floor plan, use of vertical space and height, dynamic header text/images, visitor seating, accommodating for groups, and the blend of physical, interactive and media design offered an optimal storytelling experience.

User-Friendly, Integrated Collections Management Systems

Tessellate designed an innovative museum collections software that integrates with the physical and interactive exhibits. The Collections Management System ensures data is input once and is displayed throughout the museum exhibits. This flexible software system supports interactive, immerse media including imagery, audio, video. Software development by Gorges.
