Crossing the Threshold
Catastrophic Carbon Consumption
Crossing the Threshold is an exhibit design for an interactive informational exhibit on climate change. The exhibit is an entire museum interior, requiring the viewer to pace themselves through the information, but making it impossible for them to shy away from it.
The main objective of this exhibit is to show the toll that something as massive as climate change can have on people, and to put in perspective all of the ways that it effects the people who are ultimately not at the most fault for the changes taking place.
The work tackled the ever-pressing subject of climate change and detailed the ways in which the industrialized world is responsible and the matter of human involvement as well as the effect it has on humans. The brochure served as a guide through the museum and
a take-away for the viewer to use as a reference later on as well.
The design was done in a straight-forward fashion as to convey the masses of information to the reader succinctly. The limited color palette places the focus on the information, and the monochromatic red palette emphasizes the severity of the subject as well as instill
a sense of urgency. The typography is heavy and sans serif to cut through the imagery and deliver the blatant nature of this issue. The text is large and overlapping, to further emphasize conceptually the literal scale of the issue. The style of black and white photography conveys emotional potency and furthers the sobering nature of this body of work.
