Superbugs

SUPERBUGS, The Science Museum   London, UK 2017 EXHIBITION DESIGN  The SUPERBUGS exhibition explores antibiotic resistance from micro to macro scale through personal stories. Our exhibition design for The Science Museum challenges the traditional wall sectioned exhibition layout with a 20 meter long illuminated curiosity wall freeing up floor space and utilising existing seating. At the same time it can be approached from either end of the gallery, inviting visitors to come closer.  The display wall consists of a transition of narrow to wider display cases recessed into an existing structure. The wall illustrates the story of antibiotic resistance from micro to macro scale and from the abstract form of real bacteria culture, through the personal stories of the people who fight bacteria, to today’s global search for new antibiotics. The recessed display cases contain a mix of everyday objects, films, interactive games, props and back-lit illustrations set up as a scenography to create an environment for each individual story. A collection of real bacteria are “flocked” together in a large bug resembling floor piece allowing visitors to explore them at close hand.
