I think this game may be even worse than our parking spot game.

Hey, just saw this and it reminded me of our photo album!!
An activity that will be included in the Atlantic Station Parking Garage memorabilia project is a set of paper cars to be cut out, folded and taped together. Because we have chosen to situate our work in a late 1950′s/early 1960′s aesthetic, I have found pictures of several vehicles that one might have seen at that time, and using Photoshop we will transform these into three-dimensional paper models.
Here is a draft using pictures of a 1963 Studebaker Avanti. The body design for this vehicle was ahead of its time, and only about 800 of these were made.
The other vehicles include a 1957 Chevrolet truck, a 1957 Chrysler New Yorker, a 1960 Chevrolet Impala and a 1962 Ford Falcon.
I bet this guy would love our garage project:
Of course, I won’t be able to make it but Anna Grimshaw is speaking at Emory – not sure that was running through the lists. Not completely our digital media field – more anthropology – but still maybe of interest.
