Entry Description

Design motifs of redaction, declassification, and crime scene investigation are central visual components of this special exhibition, featuring never-before-seen FBI and CIA documentation about the decade-long pursuit of the perpetrator if the 9/11 attacks. The exhibition was designed as a crime story, albeit a horrific one at a huge scale. Similar to a police procedural, it is a story of driven professionals who unite to pursue clues and seek justice. The exhibition uses physical space as a storytelling medium, creating a sense of place, time, and plot to amplify the museum experience.
