Memory Palace V&A / Le Gun

May 18, 2013

Memory Palace at the V&A will present a new work of fiction by author Hari Kunzru alongside responses from 20 leading designers, illustrators and typographers, creating a multidimensional story. Memory Palace explores how a story might be imagined in a different format - as a walk-in book, for the way we read has changed.  Above is a behind-the-scenes peek at Le Gun working hard on their contribution - you may remember their collaboration with Tracey Neuls last year resulting in the fabulous rubber-soled Le Gun shoe. The story by Hari Kunzru is set in a future London, hundreds of years after the world’s information infrastructure is wiped out by an immense magnetic storm. Technology and knowledge have been lost, and a dark age prevails. Nature has taken over the ruins of the old city and power has been seized by a group who enforce a life of extreme simplicity on all citizens. Recording, writing, collecting and art are outlawed. That is all we can give away for now, expect the unexpected! Exhibition starts 18th June - 20th October 2013
