In Your Face
National Media Museum, Bradford

Open July – October 2016

In Your Face, the summer exhibition at the National Media Museum, is a family experience that aims to investigate the most photographed, examined, and expressive part of the human body through a pick-and-mix adventure of interactive demonstrations, displays and activities.

RFA were approached with a challenging brief: design a treatment to bring together the many disparate but essential elements which make up this exhibition, in such a way that the overall experience feels coherent and fun.

Interactive art, hands-on learning experiences and conventional museum exhibits are all displayed together with connecting graphic lines providing visual coherence between the displays. Simple 3D structures complement the graphic elements, offer surfaces for projection and a variety of engaging displays.

In an incredibly tight turnaround, only 2 months were available to create concept ideas, produce working drawings, design the full graphic scheme, tender the project, and manufacture and install.
