The Travelling Museum of British Invention

During 2013 I was invited to create a number of exhibits for the Travelling Museum of British Invention, a bus filled with 100 exhibits about of Britain’s most important inventions, discoveries and social innovations. 

Exhibits were designed to fit into draws, cupboards, lockers and cabinets, which filled the bus from floor to ceiling. For the first leg of the tour to Midlothian Science Festival, I made exhibits representing the theory of evolution, the safety bicycle, the tin can and the defibrillator. Texts supplied by the curators had to be included in each exhibit. In November the bus returned to London for Parliament Week and I was invited back to design special exhibits representing Cabinet Ministers and the Magna Carta.

For myself, this was a refreshing break from making live performance work. These exhibits allowed me to bring my illustration and design skills to the fore but they maintain a fun interactive element informed by the many years of experience with audience interaction. It's a way of working I hope to explore further in the future.
