A record store that doesn't sell records

POSTED BY Shane Long on Feb 22, 2012

Awhile back the interactive team took a quick field trip down the street to visit a new record store. We perused the stacks, admired the covert art, and breathed in the musty smell of the sleeves and vinyl for the better part of an hour. The thing was, none of us left with any albums, because nothing was for sale.

"The Record Store" is part of a traveling art installation sponsored by the Seattle Art museum and Olsen Kundig Architechts. This interactive exhibit encourages its "users" to explore music, every decade and genre can be found throughout the store, and once you've discovered an artifact that tickles your fancy, you can go play it on one of the many turntables scattered throughout the room.

You can see some of my favorites discoveries below.
