Design Installation Environment

Exhibition Milton

Kingman @ the Milton

Exhibition design, production and installation of exhibition information, displays, cases and museum objects. On the museum’s 150 year anniversary, the exhibition celebrates it’s history and it’s role in the community past, present and looking to the future. The exhibit does this by showing a revitalized, contemporary display of a selection of the permanent collection. This exhibit enables the viewer to experience the range of the Kingman Museum’s collection, natural history, space, world cultures, and science.

Bright, optimistic and precise, the Kingman @ The Milton calls for the contemporary branding system along with a party atmosphere of color and graphics. Narrative twists and turns keep viewer interest while providing entertaining learning opportunities. The freestanding information stands simultaneously frame the cases, focusing the viewer on to the museum object within the case and provides a enveloping colorful environment, a kind of maze for the visitor to wander through.

The Sweet Potato Show

Sweet Potato Show: Environmental Design Installation

The Sweet Potato Show is an environmental design installation that encourages and enables social interaction. The visually rich, informal walls and furniture focus on the visitor. The installation provides a comfortable environment based on rural Tennessee culture. The Sweet Potato show includes collaborative, community participation, food and music. Tennessee Southern food, Caribbean and Chinese food celebrate our community. All this and even a kids lemonade stand out front brought people through art, food, music and respect.

Informal, visually rich objects based on rural form are the environment for community food, music and talk.



Publication Design: Siddartha by Hermann Hesse

Illustration, typography and production layout of seminal book by the German author Hermann Hesse. This book along with Steppenwolf (27) and Narcissus and Goldmund (30) formed the basis of his opus that resulted in Hesse’s Nobel Prize for Literature 1946.

The book combines sumi paintings and collage elements. Pressed leaves, sandwiched between two sheets of waxed paper reminds the reader of childhood while referencing Siddartha’s journey to enlightenment. This then can serve as an analogy to the way in which each of us gathers our experiences, remembers them and organizes them to form a life lived.
