My exhibition will feature the representation of technology in film, media, advertisement, and books. I imagine having a variety of items showcasing how "the future" was perceived by people in the past. The time frame will be from pre-World War 2 (1930’s) to the present. As the patron walks through the exhibit they will be taken through a progression of how technology has adapted and changed. The larger over arching concepts are for the patron to see how science fiction has become a reality, to contrast the similarities and differences of what we imagined the future to be, and for patrons to open their minds to future technologies which today might seem impossible.
