An audio story translated into physical space.

Radiolab is a remarkable podcast that strives to make science accessible to a broad audience. They release an episode each week that centers on a theme, such as time, space, or thought. For my two-week final project in my Rhino class, I translated their Dinopocalypse episode into a museum exhibit. In this episode, the hosts walk the audience through an alternate version of the familiar asteroid impact story. In this theory, the dinosaurs are baked to death by falling debris instead of slowly freezing from dust blocking the sun.
The show is narrative by design, and I enjoyed the challenge of transforming an auditory story into one that could be experienced in physical space. Each room corresponds to an “act” in the original episode.
I had two weeks to design, model, and render the exhibit. The focus was on the space, so areas with detailed content are marked with placeholder text.
