“The Expo Guide” is an interactive scenography that INT realised in London in 2015 with Jonathan Joanes for the exhibition: Memories of the Future.
Taking inspiration from the official catalogue of the 1862 London Exhibition, we re-imagined the exhibition guide as a complement to the installations of “Memories of the Future”.
Our Guide steps away from traditional visual, printed and audio guides, and moves towards an interactive artefact for the displaying of exhibition content. As visitors wander through the exhibition, they are invited to place the different blank pages of our guide on one of the six corresponding stations we have designed to reveal the hidden content related to each installation. Two pages will trigger a video projection when placed on the station. Another two pages will reveal graphic illustrations under a UV light. The final page is perforated with small holes that project text via directional light.
