Major: Interior Design BFA

Medium: Paper

Faculty: Christian Nguyen

Prompt: Choose Culture X (real or fictitious) and describe their life, the uniqueness of their existence, and their impact on the world. Create a diorama of a daily life scene in this culture.

The culture I chose to work with is Land of The Dead – the final destination for the deceased – in the Pixar movie Coco. The diorama I created depicts the scene where a spirit will soon experience the final death, meaning he would disappear from this world for the dead. Using blue as a background color, I intend to create a sorrowful atmosphere; the color orange (complementary to blue) helps light up the interior space in the foreground.
