In order to build booths at ComplexCon, local Boston legends, Bodega, commissioned me to create some conceptual renderings, interpretations of a buildable version of their ideal installation. Renderings were used to secure funding for the project. As things moved along, details and dimensions were pulled from the conceptual mockup to create the real deal in Long Beach, California.
A new kind of pop-up experience. A store within a store. Bodega partnered with iconic Italian denim brand, Diesel during Art Basel for a truly collaborative time in Miami. I was commissioned to help with dimensioning and logistics studies for the temporary space. Bodega’s buildout included a makeshift newsstand with a library of zines from authors all over the world. Rumor has it that the immense collection was the largest collection of its kind in the Design District. Together with LQQK Studios and Old English Rose, they gave away free jackets and t-shirts. Free tattoos and nail and hair services. Live DJ sets all throughout. When Bodega comes through, they don’t make it easy to forget.
