I curated the Joy of Sets x The Kubrick Archive Exhibition for the London Design Festival 2016. At the centre of this exhibition was a workshop led by Scene Everything's Nicholas Mortimer and Joseph Popper that used material from the Stanley Kubrick Archive based at London College of Communication, UAL.


Exhibition Info: "Science fiction meets design fiction in this set design exhibition event, which reimagines an iconic scene from Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey using material from UAL's Stanley Kubrick Archive, housed at London College of Communication. The event, which includes a free exhibition, active workshop, film seminar and space walk, is a collaboration between LCC and multidisciplinary design studio, Scene Everything as part of London Design Festival.

The Joy of Sets x The Kubrick Archive exhibition explores how we imagine, prototype and design the future – both technically and culturally – and how this features in popular culture, particularly science fiction. Activating artefacts from the Stanley Kubrick Archive, the exhibition reimagines sci-fi film sets using Kubrick’s behind the scenes imagery and concept artwork as inspiration for the 1:1 scale sets that will be on display. Inspirational items from the Kubrick archive will be on show over the course of the exhibition and from 19 – 22 September, visitors have a unique opportunity to see the film sets being built, and watch on as the exhibition actively takes shape.

Curated by Ben Stopher, Programme Director for Interactive and Visual Communication at LCC, the exhibition engages with the expanded practice of futures prototyping as part LCC’s approach to interaction design."
