Double Helices Timeline
For this project, I was asked to design a narrative exhibit through the display of tools, a focus of the studio. Through a historical lens, I presented a dialogue between how we now discover the past and what tools were used throughout history to sustain and expand French borders within France and two of its former colonies. I chose to situate this narrative in Place Bellecour, Lyon, France; Place George V, Quebec City, Canada; and Al Koutoubia Plaza Square, Marrakech, Morocco. The interaction between the tools of the past and our tools for understanding its events will be represented by a bisected timeline divided into three sections that expands throughout each site in stages. The sections are all separated and focused within a timeline relevant to the chosen site, with 300 BCE being the most relevant for Lyon, 1534 CE the most for Quebec, and 1912 CE the most for Marrakech.
