Melchior was a salesman and financial advisor, skills that came in handy for helping to end the First World War. Central carriers of information of the exhibition are massive streaks of paper. They unroll down to the display cabinet floors like cash register rolls. Their overwhelming dimension is the central associative connecting point for Melchior’s superhumanly commitment to peace, that finally cost him his life when he died of exhaustion.
Accents of color scheme, layout and typography are taken from original 1920ies train ticket designs. The tickets are a reference to Melchiors restless travelling as German representative for post-war peace negotiations. The use of extreme font styles creates a strong distance effect. The layout supports a clear structuring for the amount of information provided.
