Chrome Web Lab

Award: Graphite Pencil

Graphite Pencil / Spatial Design / Exhibition Design / 2013

The Chrome ‘Web Lab’ exhibition is open to the world online via 24-hour web cams installed in the Science Museum, London. It brings together museum and website visitors through experiments like ‘Universal Orchestra’; an orchestral exhibit that encourages users to collaborate using musical and virtual instruments, or ‘Sketchbot’; a camera that converts your portrait into a sand drawing. Designed equally for in-person and online visitors, the exhibition space is easily read online via distinct architectural planes. The graphic floor and bright ceiling grid deliver cabling, expressing the web’s data flow. Technology is deconstructed and given material form. A lab aesthetic describes an experimental space and spurs interaction.
