DOVE/UNILEVER: BEYOND COMPARE
Beyond Compare was an exhibition designed to showcase photographs by international women photographers communicating their vision of beauty. It was curated by Ogilvy & Mather agency in New York, Dove/Unilever's marketing agency. The installation was comprised of modular platforms, each bearing a custom floor lamp/easel that illuminated and supported a photograph. As an icon, the floor lamp evoked a sense of comfort and intimacy while the nuances of its components were influenced by human scale and interaction. Simple and elegant, this travelling exhibition was designed to be installed in diverse venues such as shopping malls and convention centers, each with their own spatial limitations.
The exhibit traveled North American, Amsterdam and Portugal.
