Our Beauty: The Transcendant Journey

Purdue University

West Lafayette, IN

This was a project in conjuction with Purdue University and the Cancer Culture & Community organization.  What we set out to do was to create an exhibit that centered around the speeches and stories of various individuals that were shared at the Community Cancer Network's event "Carry the Torch".  The sound design class at the university took the stories and created a soundscape for the exhibit.  The lighting then was implemented to help create an environment for someone to come in and experience these stories.  We created a space that moved from darkness of the fear and unknowingness of cancer into the light of hope that can come with the struggle.  The texture on the wall was used to create the beams of light that help signify a hopeful end to such a dark and possibly devestating event.
