TJ Maxx The Changing Room
Who says changing rooms have to be a terrible experience? What if instead of looking at yourself with judgment, you could celebrate change – who you are and who you are becoming. This 3 day experiential pop-up in NYC did just that, by bringing inspiring, honest stories of change to spectators in an innovative and immersive way.
The experience begins with participants selecting a Change Card from a wall. They then enter a dark space full of glowing mirrors. Stepping in front each mirror magically prompts different women to appear – telling their inspiring stories of change. Using directional sound, participants can intimately listen, face to face. Move deeper into the space, and participants enter a lecture room, where throughout the 3 day event, interactive panel discussions take place. Finally, participants are instructed to write a note to themselves in the future on their Change Cards, which can be dropped into a mailbox, and received 6 months later. For those who feel particularly inspired, there's also a recording booth to record your own story of change.
