How might the British Museum re-distribute their artefacts across the urban realm, to invite a dialogue about their value, significance, meaning and interpretation?
The (re) distributed museum
Working in interdisciplinary groups, MA Interior Design (ID) and Information Experience Design (IED), students were assigned artefacts of the collection of the British Museum for re-situating/re-distributing elsewhere in London. As results of this week-long project, digital and analogue designs were proposed. The artifact's provenance, historical and contemporary significance had a strong narrative connection to the site they moved it to and the ‘display’ structure they developed.
