Historiscope and Raree Show

This project was reated for the renovated Armory building in Portland, Ore, which is now the home for the theater company Portland Center Stage. Based on the historical “raree cabinet” or “peep show”, Second Story designed a cabinet resembling the facade of the Armory building itself, a castle-like structure in NW Portland. The viewer peers through a glass portal to watch a selection of six original animations covering a specific time period in the Armory’s history. detail: 6 Animations
