Name of Project: Changing the Look of Privacy

Description of Project: What was the challenge? To develop an exhibition graphic that explains why designers and manufacturers choose glass as their input over other materials to create various types of artifacts. We were instructed to choose a category of glass and specific objects to make an argument with an exhibition poster that shows why glass was preferred for technical, aesthetic, economical and other reasons over other materials. What was the solution? Intrigued by the Smartglass technology, the design inspiration evolved to portray how three various forms of glass and privacy materials alter the level by which light moves through transparent to translucent and vice versa. These forms ultimately change the look of privacy. An isometric layout enables the viewer to peer couriosly through the visual elements of Alfred Hitchcock’s “Rear Window” storylines. What was the effect? Exhibition infographic (30”X40”) that can be used to compliment a museum display of nostalgic methods of privacy such as curtains or blinds to current or future smart technologies.
