Our long history with Pink Floyd that started with Mark Fisher in the late Seventies and continued with Stufish manifested itself in the design for the exhibition 'Their Mortal Remains' at the V&A.
Working very closely with Pink Floyd's creative director Aubrey ‘Po’ Powell and Victoria and Albert’s Senior Curator Victoria Broackes; Stufish set about to design an exhibition that draws extensively on the bands extraordinarily rich audio and visual history to deliver an environment that takes the visitor through the vibrant world of Pink Floyd.
This story begins as the audience enters the exhibition through a scaled up Bedford Van replica the band used to tour with in the early 60s to find themselves immersed into the world of Pink Floyd and continues chronologically through their monumental milestones.
Interpreting and transforming iconic Pink Floyd visuals like the Van, the Wall and Battersea into 3D scenery and playing with their scale, orientation and emotional impact is a key ingredient of the exhibition design.
Juxtaposing big scenic moments with small intimate encounters that display objects, pictures and videos in carefully placed jewel cases while riding the sound scape so unique to this band, entices the visitor to go deeper and deeper into the rabbit hole and experience the band from a fresh and never before seen perspective.
