The Things She Brought by James Baffour

Capstone 2022

“THE THINGS SHE BROUGHT” is an interactive exhibit that uses object-based story-telling to illustrate the sacrifices and struggles of my mother’s migration to the United States.


Users pick objects from a bag and run them through an x-ray scanner to receive information about the object. The objects tell a story of my mother’s immigration struggle, the sacrifices she had to make, and the obstacles she had to overcome.
