Who Am I? Science Museum Commission

+ Project Information

This 2000 commission from the Science Museum in London marked the launch of the ‘Who Am I?’ Gallery, the Science Museum’s new biomedical gallery designed to exploring advances in genetic research and raise questions on new and evolving techniques in science.

For this commission, I produced a series of photographs of young people exploring the museum. During their visits (often as part of school parties), children engaged with subjects ranging from gender identification, DNA selection and body dysmorphia, amongst others.

As well as documenting the ‘Who Am I?’ gallery I also worked in several of the older spaces including earlier displays which documented the history or flight and space travel. This series was a further extension of an ongoing interest in museum display and the ways in which our relationships to objects and archives was changing in the face of remote technologies.
