The Hendrix Life Map is a 26-foot wide interactive wall that acts as the central storytelling component for the exhibit "Jimi Hendrix: An Evolution of Sound" at Experience Music Project Museum in Seattle. The installation tracks the influences and inspirations of Jimi's development as an artist. It features media screens, button activated audio, a timeline with main historical and social events, reproduction of images and real artifacts from the period and that belonged to Jimi Hendrix protected in plexiglass cases. Backed by a massive collage of images from a live Band of Gypsys performance, each section overlaps the next to show how they all collectively influenced the Jimi Hendrix sound.
