Rafael Lozano-Hemmer's interactive installation Fiducial Voice Beacons is now on display at the newlu opened Infromation Age gallery at the Science Museum. 


On Friday 24 October 2014 Her Majesty The Queen opened our new Information Age gallery by sending her first tweet. It read: “It is a pleasure to open the Information Age exhibition today at the @ScienceMuseum and I hope people will enjoy visiting. Elizabeth R.”


Information Age is divided into six zones, each representing a different information and communication technology network: The Cable, The Telephone Exchange, Broadcast, The Constellation, The Cell and The Web. The gallery explores the important events which shaped the development of these networks, from the dramatic stories behind the growth of the worldwide telegraph network in the 19th century, to the influence of mobile phones on our lives today.

Fiducial Voice Beacons is a dynamic light and sound installation that all visitors can interact with and is Rafael Lozano-Hemmer’s first permanent commission in the UK.
