Age of Imagination is a fictional exhibition design project arranged with the permanent collections and exhibition space of the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A) in London. The project shows the imagination of foreign cultures in Georgian era England and the modern imagination in popular culture of that era, an important foundation of English identity.

 

The exhibition rooms are surrounded by see-through fabric walls representing layered imaginations. The audiences journey through a noble residence and a shopping street, containing objects with their cultural origins as comparisons behind each room, divided by one-way mirror walls for a surprising experience. The design aims to provoke discussion of Englishness, and the commercialization of exoticism, through showing viewpoints and facts from the era.
