User Scenario
A visitor approaches a dog house facade with an open doorway. Inside there are 10-15 framed paper portraits with pull tabs hanging on the wall., Visitors are invited to open the portraits, revealing 3-dimensional pop-up dog portraits.
Due to the loud nature of the show, the audio will be housed on an ipod with headphones, which visitors will be given when they approach the portraits. Each portrait will have a number and a corresponding audio track.
