SOUND AND VISION: ARTISTS TELL THEIR STORIES


In this showcase for MoPOP's vast collection of oral histories, floating partitions

and inviting furnishings transform a formerly confining space into a comfortable

lounge for sampling audio-visual media.

 

A glowing centerpiece draws visitors beyond  a bottleneck entryway and into

the core of the space, provides important information about the collection,

and offers a key to placement of media clips within the space. Wall text is

enlivened by illustrations.
