Medina Storefront

This historical photo of the James Brother’s general store was used as the inspiration for an imagined and idealized period storefront. Research was done to collect images of other retail storefronts typical of the region during this time period.



A composite collage was created, matching the dimensions of the actual storefronts, using raw material both from the original location and elsewhere. The collage represents a hypothetical yet alternative reality of what might have existed in Medina in 1867. The collage incorporates an approximate architectural representation of the facade that would have been found on this building and others nearby.



The “architectural” collage is printed on the inside surface of the outer glass layer using grey ceramic frit dot matrix patter. This printing process is inert and protected from the weather and will not fade. The graphics will reference the original facade design, but at the

same time look forward to a new chapter in Medina’s history. Vistors will simultaneously experience the original facade design, remnants of the twentieth-century reconstruction, 􀁃􀁐􀁆􀀃􀁃􀀃􀁖􀁙􀁇􀁐􀁖􀁛􀀐􀄽􀁔􀁕􀁖􀀃􀁅􀁇􀁐􀁖􀁗􀁔􀁛􀀃􀁗􀁕􀁇􀀃􀁑􀁈􀀃construction technology.
