It is an exhibition at the Museum of FIT that reveals the long history of the ideal male and female form as it has been subjected to the perpetual dictates of fashion and an arsenal of artificial contraptions. The design concept for the exhibition is inspired by the constraints of the body caused by the pieces of clothing. The overall design reflects the idea of cages or linear wiring which surrounds the exhibition.
The color palette creates a mysterious and dark mood that is contrasted by the gold details and the objects on display. The circulation of the space is controlled because the visitors are guided by the layout to follow from entrance to exit. However, the visitors can use both doors as entrances but they will be encouraged to use a specific one. The goal of the design is to create an intimate space that allows the visitor to explore the objects displayed and have an interactive experience with both the design and the objects.
Programs used: AutoCAD, SketchUp, Twinmotion, Photoshop, Illustrator, InDesign
The first interaction the visitor will have with the space is the introductory wall which details the goal of the exhibition and other details. The title with the primary photograph is displayed along with the gold linear motif that is distributed throughout the space.
