Motor City
Detroit Historical Museum
Detroit, Michigan

An interpretive exhibit on the history of Detroit and its people, including a working "body drop" assembly line, over 50 feet long, salvaged from a closed Cadillac plant. The exhibit also includes light, sound and a set of sequenced audio-visual presentations. One section of the exhibit, entitled A New Job/A Better Life, explores in depth the experiences of three working families over several generations in the auto industry.

tellermadsen worked closely with the museum staff to develop exhibit concepts, media and do historical research. Additionally, we worked with a local (Detroit) engineering firm to design a mezzanine deck over the body drop for future exhibits.
