V & A MUSEUM, LONDON – A SOURCE OF INSPIRATION

Whatever reason we are in London for we always visit one of the many museums or art galleries. This time we decided to check out the V & A. If you have only ever been to the British Museum you must check out the V & A for its amazing variety!

We were spellbound by the ‘Telling Tales’ exhibition, that ‘… focused on work by designers who explore the narrative potential potential of objects, connecting the past with the present…’

After designing the touchscreen audio-video or ‘Virtual Museum’ for King’s Mill Hospital, we decided to research how similar things have been completed for the V & A. We often find that when visiting museums not only are we very interested in what is on display, but also how it is put together; gaining inspiration for our next project. We are therefore often found by bemused museum officials on our knees having a good look underneath and behind displays; everything that can be touched we touch simply to find out what it’s made of.

It’s so important to see what is out there, we are constantly researching; anything that could take the next mural we design a stage further, or down a different route.
