The Design Museum's first free permanent display of its collection: Designer Maker User tells the story of contemporary design through these three interconnected roles "from the spoon to the city" Clay was invited to design four iPadPro based interactives for the gallery's activity tables. Two of the tables use RFID technology and real physical models as interfaces.
Responding to the need to simplify potentially complex exhibits, Clay stripped back interfaces to accessible "white card" models of artefacts, with electromechanical controls.
The Tech-watch unit uses projection mapping onto an oversized model of a blank watch. Key features of three of CASIO's premium brands are animated across the 3D surface in a novel way. Visitors can select brands by pressing buttons on the unit, and the content can be updated seasonally.
The Mr G unit masquerades as a giant, immutable obelisk, but with a twist. As store visitors approach it, an aperture gradually opens to reveal the ultimate G Shock watch, one of only 200 made.
Working to an ambitious and demanding brief, Clay designed and developed a 31 square-meter interactive wall of thousands of images, videos and detailed case study material that explores the nature and impact of global warming. This mosaic of imagery is arranged by topic and hue, and is then animated by the constant activity of visitors.
Clay produced the interactive Periodic Table of Swearing for Modern Toss. It was built in our Hoxton Street studio during our summer holidays. It's constructed from over 100 buttons, CNC'ed and laser cut MDF, direct to media printing, over 100 meters of cabling, over 300 soldered joints and a whole lot of swearing!
When he’s awake the Clay / 9000 is designed to tell visitors stories about well-known robots in science fiction literature. The stories are animated on a screen embedded into his chest.
The predictions table is a fun quiz that tests multiple players' science fiction knowledge.
