A Story of Two Halves
National Football Museum

A close collaboration with Land Design and architects OMI, the National Football Museum kicked off during 2001. A multifaceted and diverse project of mixed media, the Museum displays interactive installations with bold graphics, film footage and striking typography.

Curated and displayed within a social context, it’s a complex assemblage of memorabilia and curios collected by the late Harry Langton. All this however, is combined with a sense of wit that is consistently employed even on the toilet signs.

Unlike the attacking team of the modern game, Arsenal teams of the 70s and 90s were ridiculed for their brand of football. This installation invited visitors to the National Football Museum to literally watch paint dry. A coating of heat-sensitive ink concealed the Arsenal team. Their identities were only revealed by pressing buttons on a console that activated a hair dryer.
