What he said

My early career aspiration was to be a museum exhibition designer, but life took me down another path (as it often does). So when the pre-Colombian collection of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art made its debut after a 3-year absence with an artist-designed installation, I made the Scooby sound. The museum commissioned Cuban interiors impresario Jorge Pardo to create the revamped installation of its Mesoamerican collection. Known for his color-saturated club interiors, Pardo selected a runway-worthy color palette and carved display cases out of stacked sheets of fiberboard for a decidedly un-museum-like setting. Luscious.

That must be where your predilection for tinkering with store displays came from. Or perhaps it's the other way around?
