The Delight Archive of NYC
Experience in Space
Spring 2021
For my senior thesis project “The Art of Reminiscing”, I collected people’s favorite memories throughout NYC and created a campaign surrounding the importance of reflecting on warm fuzzy feelings of nostalgia. (Read more about it above!) I thought about my project living in the physical world as an exhibition and came up with the pop-up show “The Delight Archive of NYC.” The imagined exhibition would showcase the stories I  collected so viewers would be able to walk in a room and be surrounded by moments of delight. The city is always changing rapidly, especially due to the pandemic, so I wanted the campaign and exhibition to be a grounding presence for viewers.

The pop-up show would live in Vanderbilt Hall in Grand Central Station. The iconic Beaux Arts building would be a perfect high traffic space for the exhibition.
