Project 6: Paul Carlson -- Mauk Design

The class trip to Mauk Design was enlightening and informative. As Mitchell Mauk mentioned, all exhibits should tell a story; we need to figure out what the story of Stream is, and how best to package/convey that. Another thing he mentioned that I thought worth taking note of was the fact that the only truly green/sustainable exhibit design is one that uses less, not more; also, if it can be re-used, so much the better. This is something I believe strongly in, in making (at least some components of) Stream re-usable. I also particularly appreciated his suggestion for making exhibits dynamic by incorporating movement, whether actual (as in the case of the Reynolds Composites bicycle wheel display) or illusionary (as in the case of projectors mated with Gobos).
