Future-telling | Exhibition Design

July 2013 - Jan 2014,
Trento, Italy

"Can we imagine a world without hands ?"
is the question made to introduce the exhibition "The Hand - limb, art, artefact" held at Muse Science Museum, Trento, Italy.

In the installation, 5 monitors laid on the table provoke visitors to touch them only to find out what is then shown on the monitors "Don't touch me, tell me".

The visitors will have to pronounce keywords shown on the monitors to reveal the story behind that word. The story is of the future imagined by several science fiction films in which the fantasy about voice control interaction was imagined since 1930s.

Role : Concept, Interaction design, Programming
