This press event for the introduction of the Michael Graves product line for Target was dubbed by the designers "From Pompeii to Pop Art." The theme references one of Michael Graves' decorative collections, which was inspired by an artifact from Pompeii, and a toaster in the collection, representing Pop Art. For the Whitney, Design Guys devised floor plans, technical drawings and a verbal flow chart, which talked through the "experience" of attending the event. The intention was to create more than a static museum show.
SGI dramatically illustrated the media streaming capabilities of its new ORIGIN 2000 server by placing the server at the core of its exhibit and using it to power 138 separate monitors.

Village Works: Photographs by Women in China's Yunnan Province
Village Works is an exhibition of a photo project documenting life in a remote Chinese province, with photos taken by local women.

Sealing them off in frames would signify them as art and possibly obscure their immediacy. Also, there were no original prints to show; the photos had been scanned and existed digitally.
