I Object, Ian Hislop‘s Search for Dissent
The British Museum
‘I Object’ features objects from the British Museum’s collection that reveal how people have always challenged and undermined orthodox views in order to enable change. The selection of objects is very diverse, and the graphic design works with the AV and 3D design to give the visitor a feeling of Ian Hislop’s personality travelling through the exhibition.
The graphic design reflects the subtle, makeshift nature of dissent. The unfinished raw materials used help reinforce this feeling. Interactive exhibits include a very popular badge-making station.
Speech bubbles are used throughout the exhibition to reveal Ian’s commentary, and yellow labels pop out to prompt the visitor to consider their own opinion and encourage family discussion.
