The transatlantic slave map and movement of people from Africa to America was explored through Pepper Pot, a meal similar to gumbo filled with ingredients cultivated in gardens of enslaved Africans.
In addition to the physical design, we developed a bespoke interactive that explores the complex subject matter of human and food migration through an immersive tablescape.
Inspired by the remarkable quilt at the center of the exhibit, Blue Telescope brought in a bold color palette, highlighting the vibrant subject matter and providing intuitive wayfinding.
