MET Studio wins The Drum Awards Design’s Experiential Design Award for its Blink exhibit, featuring the work of fashion photographer Nick Knight
The event was held to support the #TheEndIsInSight campaign, which aims to eradicate trachoma by 2025. The eye disease causes blindness in nearly 2 million people across the globe. The experience digitally tracked each time a visitor blinked in the space, eroding a series of contemporary photographs pixel by pixel, blink by blink, imitating the effects of trachoma. The photographs eventually devolved into thick lines and split shadows, representing reduced sight. The first-of-its-kind immersive experience raised awareness of the disease among those who visited it.
MET Studio received the Best Experiential Design 2020 award for their creativity, and were highly commended in the “Design for Good” category for the campaign.
D&P: from the Marshall Plan to a deal with Chargeurs, combining two distinct legacies
The history of D&P, the largest American integrated museum solutions platform, may take you by surprise. Let’s go back to 1940s America…
At the time, D&P was making a name for itself by presenting travelling exhibitions on the Marshall Plan to citizens throughout the United States. The Marshall Plan, initiated by President Harry Truman in 1947, outlined a program to help rebuild Europe following the devastation of World War II.
D&P built its business upon a powerful story. D&P’s singular heritage, allied with Chargeurs’ industrial track record, allows it to successfully influence markets beyond America, thanks to Chargeurs Museum Solutions’ global presence.
