Designer for London Bodies

Exhibitions group Wordsearch has won a three-way credentials pitch to create the London Bodies show at the Museum of London.

The exhibition is scheduled to run from 26 October until February next year, and will reveal how the appearance of Londoners has changed over time, using the museum’s collection of artefacts, including human remains.

Interactive exhibits and 3D computer images will be used to present the findings, and will allow visitors to see how they would look covered in Bronze Age tattoos.

Wordsearch’s plans include a forensic, laboratory-style environment, designed to display objects on mortuary slabs and light boxes.
