CONTEXT

The intention for this project was to create an experiential space in which visitors to the 'Museum of Ice Cream' could grasp the joyful sensations of mint-chocolate ice cream. The manifestation was a sensorial exhibition in which users could touch, taste, smell, and interact with mint chocolate motifs and become immersed in a novel environment with unique sculptural elements. The primary features of the space were the 'jungle' of oversized mint plants, fabricated from heat-pressed vinyl sheets covered in rubber and amalgamated together with steel wire stems ; and the 'legendary' golden chocolate wall panels, made from machined MDF boards painted with an automotive finish and embedded with small cabinets containing curious smells and ice cream factoids.
