As part of my graduate thesis for my MFA in Design and Technology at Parsons, I designed, prototyped and built an interactive art installation called Curio. This new media art piece was based on a series of fictional stories that are narrated through the eyes of Lola, the main character while also commenting critically on the everyday life in cubicle office spaces. Surreal artifacts inhabit the space and are designed in order for the public to interact with them

 

The booth: a transportation device into the story of Lola

The viewer will discovers Lola’s daily trials and tribulations through sounds and videos that react to objects embedded in the space.Little by little the public will connect the dots between bits and pieces of the story and realize that these objects are actually invented by Lola.Throughout the experience, the viewer will enter a fictional world where play, humor, drama and critical thinking will be combined into one singular experience.
