Who Am I? Exhibition @ Science Museum

DSC_0972(2)

Today we were fortunate enough take a visit to the Who Am I? exhibit at the Science Museum and speak with one of the principal people involved in its creation, Emily Scott-Dearing, who has spent fourteen and a half years working for the Science Museum.

Situated in the Wellcome Wing, Who Am I? is a contemporary, forward-facing exhibition which aims to show what science can tell us about ourselves through the lens of identity. Originally opened in 2000, the exhibit was refreshed in 2010: a two-year project with a four million pound budget. The curators collaborated with the Wellcome Trust, and received corporate sponsorship from the likes of companies such as GSK.

The exhibition houses a variety of media, including showcases, gallery books, terminals and interactive ‘bloids’.

Below are some images of the silvery, amorphous ‘bloids’ which house the interactive exhibits. All interactive exhibits carry messages and learning outcomes which echo those of the showcases, and exist to cater to different learning styles.
