Abuela's Living Room - Installation

The whole installation is the core of this project. All other outcomes are displayed on an open shelf credenza. I designed the furniture and got help building it (thank you Daniel and Jasmin). The compartments of the furniture all fit a specific outcome of the project, and its colour and purpose are inspired by furniture in my grandmother’s living room (dark walnut wood pieces). The wallpaper is taken directly from the OffCourse outcomes, and serves to deliniate the space in an architectural way, letting exhibition visitors know where the living room starts and ends. 

The video, pop-ups, cassettes, and their technology are displayed on the top half of the credenza, while the bottom half is filled with records to let the audience know that this installation is about music.
