Craft & Graft: Making Science Happen
Exhibition design, Francis Crick Institute, London, 2018
Craft & Graft takes a look behind the scenes at the Crick Institute, Britain’s biggest laboratory facilities. This exhibition attempts to turn the laboratories inside out to provide the public with a glimpse at the technicians’ work.
In collaboration with the Crick and Plaid London, we developed a strong utilitarian and modular exhibition design. Graphics and colours are informed by our observations of the laboratory facilities which in combination with photography participate in creating immersive environments. One to one images are printed on perforated pegboard to provide backdrops for the diorama boxes while banners dropping from the ceiling help to create privacy from viewers in the street. Bold floor graphics are used as a navigation system as well as linking all the different stories together.
