The exhibit design and build within the Humainologie Gallery + Store retail space presented a unique challenge, as all exhibits had to be designed so that they could be easily removed with no damage to the cabinetry beneath and while using cost-effective and sustainable materials. The design solution was to use direct printed hard panel materials fabricated with threaded pegs for mounting and fastening into the pegboard. This method of fabrication allowed the doors of the cabinets to swing open and closed freely with disturbance to the exhibits, and for easy changeability when necessary without damage. Project commencement to opening date was 90 days, which required fast design turn-around, approval, fabrication, and installation of all exhibits.
Three of the exhibits featured video and interactive portions to be integrated into the display, which required the sourcing of tablet mounting hardware and headphones so that viewers could step up to the video, put on the headphones and engage with the display as required. Two of the other displays, shown below, had an area where people could place shoes of the subject in the video for deeper interaction with the exhibit. We placed permanent floor decals to show where shoes could be placed, before returning them to their hanging area on the cabinet face.
