Client: National Science and Media Museum
There are now more devices connected to the internet than there are people on the planet. Smart homes, virtual assistants and connected toys offer more ways to be online than ever before. These devices can make us safer, bring people together, and make everyday tasks easier. Yet for many, the connected world is uncharted territory. Does being permanently online make you feel safe — or suspicious?
We created a typographical system that followed you throughout the exhibition, ebbing and flowing between objects and stories alongside layered interpretation like stacks of paper.
On the move
Since its initial run at the Science and Media Museum, Never Alone has become a touring exhibition taking up residence at Bletchley Park and Ithra Center for World Culture in Saudi Arabia.
With these moves we have tailored the exhibition and content to suit the spaces, one a super-modern peice of architecture and the other a small former code-breakers hut from World War Two.
These brought their own unique challenges from interpretation in different languages to the different perceptions of surveillance.
Working with Bletchley Park’s own rich history that proved concerns about privacy and surveillance are not unique to the internet age and brought a whole new angle to the travelling exhibition.
