Winifred’s Moving House A Story for Cat Lovers
 
Up until today, I’ve lived here. I was born here, and thought I’d live here forever. But today I’m moving. 
 
My name’s Winifred, you can call me Winnie. I’m not one of those fussy pedigree cats, just a cat. My tail is loooong and every time I catch it, it really [oooOOOOWWW] hurts.
 
I don’t want to leave but that’s what big cats do. I don’t feel so big today. 
 
I’m going to live with a Kate, she’s a human… aaawwwhhHH! MUUUMMMM! I don’t like HUMANS!
 
The other human is Mum too… WEIRD! She’s doesn’t look like Mum and she s-s-smells like DOG! aaawwwhhHH! MUUUMMMM!
 
The car trip is horrible! I sneezed and wee went everywhere. Kate squealed like a pig aaaaAAAHHHH! MUUUMMMM!
 
Kate’s shoved me against the glass, my nose was cold. She scratched behind my ears, I scratched behind her ears… aaaaAAAHHHH! MUUUMMMM! [M: Don’t Scratch!] [W:Huh?]
 
I’m busting to explore my new garden [struggle] aaaaAAAHHHH! MUUUMMMM! I guess I’ll play later. 
 
These benches are too high. I don’t drink milk… yyyuuuUUKKK! I circled and circled, [grab ankles] aaaaAAAHHHH! MUUUMMMM! [M: Don’t Scratch!] Eventually she gave me proper food. I love Sardines.
 
I did a wee in a box. oooOOOHHHHaaaahhHHH Kate looked like a monkey. Weird! Does she wee in a box? 
 
I’m trying to sleep BUT Kate’s bored… I pounce aaaaAAAHHHH! MUUUMMMM! [M: Don’t Scratch!]
 
[M: Don’t Scratch!] [M: Don’t SCRATCH!] [M: DON’T SCRATCH!]
I don’t know where to scratch.
 
I WANT TO GO OUTSIDE! I pounce aaaaAAAHHHH! MUUUMMMM! [M: DON’T SCRATCH! Put that cat OUTSIDE!] Success…
 
I think I’ll like it here.

My aim for this group show was to engage with my potential new audience, get some feedback at targeted events, and to test technology requirements and feasibility of interactive entertainment and illustration reaching mass adoption in locations compromised by poor connectivity.

WYNLEN HOUSE Interactive Rack Card
The gorgeous Bronwyn and Helen of Wynlen House Slow Food Farm and Learning Centre were invited by the Italian Slow Food Movement to their Conference in Turin in September 2016. They needed something fun and interactive, light and portable and easy to update in both omnichannel presentations and transmedia outputs, with a seamless optimised backend and a gorgeous digital interface. We wanted interaction data too, across numerous events, that could be validated within the integration by pulling data metrics across a suite of analytics tools. It also needed to look good in its print form, load digital content quickly and efficiently and have a easy-use interface to optimise experience for users with multiple digital literacy. The opportunity to test one of our new prototypes in an international and domestic territory was too good to pass up, so here is a new use of a developing interactive print/digital portal. This one is powered by Layar. Scan the front and back panels with your device and watch a video or press the buttons. Feedback is always wanted. Likewise we're always looking for Guinea Pigs wanting to do something new with brand narratives.
