Maintaining ecological integrity

In partnership with Atlantex Creative Works and Parks Canada, Form:Media designed and fabricated outdoor interpretive media for Fundy National Park, New Brunswick. The project interprets the role of Parks Canada and visitors, delivering a message about ecological integrity as well as the important role Parks plays in managing special places such as these. Featuring structural, landscape, sculptural, and graphic components, the installations respond to the Park’s desire to engage visitors, avoid “signs on sticks,” and integrate interpretive media to create meaningful experiences within this phenomenal landscape.

Form media captured the essence of the natural and cultural heritage of the site including the logging history, the aquatic life and the landscape and presented them in such a way as to enhance visitor experience. Panel text and images supported the main messages, which were clearly understood. The text was interesting to read and the images were fascinating.… It really enticed me to stop and discover what was there.
