DHA Designs are very pleased to continue our association with the Science Museum and DrinkallDean by working on Drawn by Light exhibition in the Museum’s Media Space.
Our third exhibition in the space brings about it’s own special challanges, in this case how to light three Heliographic silver plates to ensure all were visible. This turned out to be a very delicate task.
This exhibition draws on many collections and is a must see for anyone interested in the history of photography and photographers.
The exhibition runs until the 3rd of January 2015.

Friday 24th October saw the opening of the Information Age Gallery at the Science Museum in London, the first gallery of the museum’s ambitious Masterplan that will see many of the major galleries refurbished or replaced. Information Age tells the story of 21 communication advances or inventions that changed our world, from the invention of the telegraph to the foundation of the world wide web. The gallery was designed by Universal Design Studio, with whom DHA have collaborated on a number of projects, including the Sony exhibition at the Milan Salone. DHA provided a complete exhibition lighting design scheme, including display cases and interactive exhibit lighting.
The gallery was opened by Her Majesty the Queen, who after touring the exhibits, used the opportunity to send her first tweet via the @BritishMonarchy account. Rory Cellan-Jones covered the opening via his BBC technology blog
