Artworks in fine art museums are treated with utmost respect (rightfully so), but this tends to create a literal and figurative distance between the artwork and the viewer. This is in contrast to contemporary interactive exhibits that encourage audience participation and physical movement.
So for this project, I explored ways to let viewers have a personal experience with works of art outside of the museum space. This collection celebrates sources of inspiration and imagination—from the simplest of nature’s forms to the most mythical of creatures. It carries artworks ranging from familiar motifs to world-renowned artists’ creations, there’s something for everyone.
