National Trust Buckland Abbey
This project for National Trust Buckland Abbey involved the creation of a gallery where a single object - a Rembrandt painting took centre stage, offering multiple perspectives, both in a physical and conceptual sense.
The exhibition design included specifying wall, floor, and ceiling finishes, as well as an extensive set of track lighting and fixtures. We oversaw the design and procurement of all exhibition furniture, collaborating with conservation specialists to develop unique fixings that allowed the Rembrandt painting to be suspended using cables within the room.
We designed and implemented an interactive AV element which draw parallels between Rembrandt self portrait and ‘selfies’. Visitors where able to upload their own selfies to a dedicated Flickr gallery, from which a background API constructed a mosaic version of the Rembrandt which was then broadcast back into the space. This was presented on a large screen as well as an iPad on which visitors could zoom in to the mosaic to search out their own portrait.
