Blythe House Stores

This prototype, developed in collaboration with The Science Museum, is one of three pieces of work designed to explore the application of the spatial and interactive technologies developed as part of Experience Temple Works within museum and archival settings, coining the concept of ‘archiving the archive’. These projects were initially intended to explore the potential of providing ‘virtual access’ to privileged spaces of knowledge, much as Experience Temple Works opens up the possibility to explore aspects of the sensory experience of the building to a much wider audience, but in their realisation, a far greater number of affordances were revealed (see section 5.3 of the thesis).

This prototype virtual archive represents parts of the Science Museum's dentistry and communication collections at the Blythe House Stores.
