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.
