In my exhibition design class we were randomly assigned animals to make exhibits about. The parameters for the assignment were relatively open but you did need to tell 3 stories about the animal throughout the exhibit. After doing a lot of research and watching a lot of prairie dog videos on national geographic I decided that the prairie dog towns were what I wanted to focus on. Over the next few weeks I developed an immersive experience that would take the visitor from deep in the ground to the surface. I wanted to design a space that would reflect the feeling of being of underground without generating a Disney Land style experience.
