The Polaroid Project
The Polaroid Project: At the Intersection of Art and Technology was an exhibition in two adjacent gallery spaces that explored various dimensions of the relationship between the art and technology of Polaroids, with over 200 photographs and 100 objects. To unite the two galleries, and the art and the technology, the iconic Polaroid spectrum rainbow logo was translated into a continuous spine through the centerline of the exhibition, tying together the 2 gallery spaces, display cases, immersive seating, and a connecting wall. The display cases featured artifacts including prototypes, components, and cameras tracing the Polaroid company’s many technological innovations over time. Photographs were displayed on “baffle” walls inspired by the interior of a 20x24 large format instant camera, which was also prominently displayed in the exhibition.
