Isabella was a site specific, speculative multimedia installation for the Boston’s Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. Isabella is comprised of a series of framed video screens that present a motion-and sound-activated likeness of Isabella Stewart Gardner (1840–1924)—the founder of the museum. The installation is intended to educate museum visitors through the contextual conversations the emerge between visitors and Isabella. This video abstract was for a project developed in my graduate (MFA) studies at the Dynamic Media Institute at Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
