When I went in the exhibit, it was really interactive. There a house-like structure which was a surprise to me. There were curtains and there was different stations in the exhibit. There was also books telling a story for each station.
As content, she explains herself and her life throughout these models and books. She explains personal struggles and experiences. Her childhood was also a big part of her displays because she showed a relationship between toys and animals. They were a huge impact on her life
I enjoyed her exhibit because it was very unique and different. I had fun reading her stories and getting to know her one on one.
