Bassem Shaaban worked with the Office of Exhibits Central (OEC) and the Smithsonian’s American Art Museum to design develop and produce the Art of Video Games exhibit; A 5 year touring exhibit that chronicles the development of video games. A simple assembly process was necessary and achieved by mating custom HDPE parts, latches and CNC milling. Although the primary focus was to prototype the “kiosk” section, the process of fabrication was streamlined by creating a mill-and-assemble technique developed during the prototyping stage.
