Britain is steeped in history—it’s the ultimate museum without walls and a record of over one thousand years of influential architecture and design. Starting in the Northern English city of York, this program will travel to Edinburgh in Scotland, and cumulate in the capitol city of London. These three very different cities are equidistant from each other and represent a cultural and historical “design slice” through the heart of the British Isles. The program will follow two main tracks: (1) the design of products and multi-sensory experiences for cultural, commercial and public spaces, called “narrative design,” and (2) the history and evolution of modern British design expression, from the iconic Mini Cooper and the mini skirt, to the graphic identity for the London Underground.

  • Chronology of the Modern Exhibition Experience The “exhibition” as we know it is nothing new. For hundreds of years collectors, patrons, artists and entrepreneurs have been employing techniques to engage and entertain audiences. I’ve set out to document the modern day exhibition experience. Throughout its chronology, the use of wonder, spectacle and awe are re-occurring themes. We can trace the evolution of the exhibition through early mystical experiences in the 17 th century and the origins of the modern museum to the current day advances in digital surfaces and media manipulation. My chronology of exhibition experiences includes: Mystical Systematic Contextual Didactic Blockbuster Immersive Multimedia
