EXHIBITIONISM: PART C
You have now not only designed, but also curated an exhibition in physical space — no small undertaking! Now what happens if that physical space is gone or inaccessible? How can you recreate your exhibition digitally using the same intentionality? For the next step in this workshop, create a digital translation of your exhibition. You should not be creating an exhibition prosthetic (a website to showcase your physical exhibit) but rather rebuilding your exhibition as a paralleled digital experience. Your digital exhibition should shareable, public facing (in theory), and must incorporate your title wall and intro text designs.
SOME QUESTIONS TO CONSIDER:
—How can you create conceptual parallel between the physical space of your exhibition and the digital platform you decide to use?
—How do your objects translate to digital space? Will you photograph them? Will you render them? Will they be represented by words? Or even more vaguely — ideas!
—Will you expand or reduce the number of objects present in your collection?
—Does your digital exhibition draw from a single aspect of your physical exhibition, or does it use all of the same elements?
—Will you stay close to your original narrative or will you push away from it to form a new one?
