It all began with a quilt. The colors and content of the quilt inspired the entire installation called the “Dyning Room.” Auditory, olfactory, tactile and interactive elements created a heightened experience.
Accessibility within the exhibit
- The William Tell Overture (Spring) played in the background by the entrance while birds sang and the occasional dog barked to authenticate a surreal outdoor auditory experience.
- The inner Dyning Room area had sounds of oxygen machine hums, infrequent coughing and the occasional ghost phone ringing, which left an eerie feeling inside.
- This exhibit had a wheelchair accessible walkway to the central waiting room lobby area.
- Flowers, which could be smelled, slowly wilted and died throughout the life of the exhibit in the gallery.
- Items within the exhibit could be touched; under supervision for blind visitors. The walkway path was lined with castle-wall blocks to help guide all visitors into the exhibit space.
