Cross Currents: Navigating Environmental Change in Oceania 

People have a relationship with the environment. Through exploration of traditional Oceanic practices of navigation, exchange, and fishing, visitors will become more aware of their own relationships with, and impact on the environment. The primary audience consists of young professionals (21-35) who are interested in travel, are globally and environmentally conscious, as well as physically active. The Smithsonian Institution National Museum of Natural History is to host this exhibition, with a collection of Oceania artifacts. The organic-contemporary design of the exhibition encompasses the natural movement and flow of an ocean's currents. The materials used in this exhibition are mostly re-claimed and recycled, giving a hand-craft and rustic gestalt. The organic geometries and raw materials reinforce the idea of a dynamic relationship with the environment.
