Bobby’s Birthday

One morning after Bobby (a cat) leaves to study with their friends at the library, their roommate Percy (a dog) remembers that it’s Bobby’s birthday! Follow Percy as he runs around town, preparing the best last-minute party he possibly can.

Bobby’s Birthday was presented in an art gallery as a series of animated dioramas. As guests moved from one scene to the next, they were able to read along with the story of Percy’s shenanigans or listen along to a pre-recorded narration, available on the web or by calling a phone number.

This attraction was designed, written, assembled, painted, and installed by me, John Holdun.
