I object, Ian Hislop's search for dissent


British Museum
September 2018

Working closely with the museum's internal design team, Clay designed and produced the AV media for this exhibition at the British Museum, the result of Ian Hislop's search for content that explores themes of dissent within the museum's vast collection.

As well as introducing Ian as the exhibition voice, the films playfully show his journey through the museum and highlight a few hidden details in some seemingly everyday objects.

Clay scripted and directed the filming, and created animated content that was editing into the footage, enhancing the interpretation in engaging and surprising ways. The films are presented throughout the exhibition across multiple synchronised displays in varying configurations, in a subtle nod to the art of dissent.
