Exhibition identity and interpretation for Lost & Found: Mapping European Literary London, in the (Grade 1 listed) cloisters at University College London. The exhibition encourages visitors to explore London through the eyes of European writers and reflect on the city as a place where people and cultures meet and are transformed.
The exhibition draws on an interactive digital map of London developed by UCL European Institute, the Faculty of Arts and Humanities and the Bartlett Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, with contributions from across the UCL community.
We developed a design which uses the existing display infrastructure of wall-mounted panels as a base, then extend beyond with layered image panels and punctuated by a ‘bookmark’ set behind the panel with the theme title, connecting down to the floor graphic.
Each panel showcases 4 entries from the digital map, and their locations are mapped on the large floor graphic. We placed the entries and their translations, onto 3D wedge shapes. A bespoke interactive panel with a woven bungee cord grid allows visitors to add their own thoughts about how London has changed them.
