Here the exhibit designer used a plain white scrim to divide space. The natural translucency and texture of the panel allows the viewer to see what is behind the model.



  • Using Text to Set a Mood


  • Using text is a simple device to add context to the exhibit.

  • Using Screens to Make a Focal Point

  • The screens draw the eye to the precise point desired within the exhibit.

  • Translucent Screens Invite the Viewer to Explore

  • The selective diffusion of the screens allows the rest of the exhibit to entice the viewer to stroll around and explore further. (See Pictures Below)

    The viewer finds more and more to draw themselves further into the exhibit.

  • Projection is Also Possible

  • Although not shown here, other museums combine printing on scrims, plain scrims and also front and rear projection. A simple example of that is projecting exhibit information, or video of artifacts in use..
