New Display Technique

I love how these photos are displayed. This installation, at the Taubman Museum, Roanoke, shows the architect's process of building the Taubman, as well as other buildings. The installation features 5 rows of taught metal wire that sticks off the wall about 2 inches. Each row is labeled with a stage of the design process, design, tools, installation, etc. Simple 4x6 photographs are hung from the wire in a timeline-like fashion. Above the photos right below the ceiling are the architect's sketches. So the viewer not only gets a feel for the steps of the process, but is also surrounded by images as they circulate around the room. I'd love to try a simpler version of this in a studio space or in an office-what a great way to make simple 4x6's look so professional.
