Energy Gallery, The Science Museum, London, 2004

This project is a Critical Design experiment commissioned by the Science Museum exploring different energy futures. The gallery is aimed at children aged between 7 and 14. We chose to design a collection of hypothetical products to explore the ethical, cultural and social impact of different energy futures. Photographic scenarios were used to communicate a set of values driven by social as well as technological changes -- value fictions rather than science fictions.
 
The scenarios include: domestic hydrogen production and child labour with specially designed family uniforms and corporate logos; bio-fuel created from human waste; and meat-based microbial fuel cells. Each scenario is based on a real technology and simply asks what would happen if this became the main form of energy in the not too distant future.
