Class Field Trip to The National Bank Museum

Last Saturday on the 1st of June our lecturer has organized a class trip class to the National Bank Museum here in Kuala Lumpur to work on our research for the upcoming project that is related to the bank artifact. There were many interesting things to explore surprisingly as I wasn't expecting it to be interesting as it was a museum, but after seeing how the exterior looks like, i take back what I said about it being boring and uninterested. 

The Numismatics Gallery
We first visited the Numismatics Gallery due to the fact it is related to our upcoming project. The Numismatics Gallery featured our nation history of our trading was commerce and the history of how coins was use as a form of trading and buying goods. It shows also has interactive installation that really engage visitors and give a different experience when visiting a museum. The interactive installation also helps people understand about history better in a interactive and visual way.

Overall it was a fun and interesting experience to the museum. I've learn more about my country history and how trading was made in the past.


Question

2-it's building architecture and its interior design

3-the old coins artifact; I'm curious on with how the design of the ingots and trading coins was created and why they uses such design.

4-from this trip I've learn more about our country trading and currency history. And besides of just seeing images of the trading coins in the history book, I'm able to see the real object right in front of me. Overall it's a very inviting experience due to the fact I'm impress with its modern architecture design and how the artifact was arrange neatly. Yes, the information was presented not only using traditional format with is displaying it, they also make use of modern technology to convey the message to the visitor. Interactive presentation like games of how different nation use to trades goods, visitors can experience how was it like during that era of trading.


5-yes, by hearing museum, the net generation with have a impression of how boring the experience is going to be, with the looks of modern architecture of the structure they will share about how modern the building is and it's interior design. They will also share out how interesting is the history of the coins of out country is and what other nation trade us.

In Between

          After a long day doing my assignment I can say that I'm fairly satisfied with the result of my labour. This is one of the shots I took while trying to freeze the motion of the water droplets. The thing I love about this picture is that how uniformly the droplets is as a sphere and how the distance between them is always constant. I obtain this interesting effect while I'm playing around with the RAW data, adjusting its exposure and contrast, and this is what i get. Done in Adobe Photoshop.
