In collaboration with Veuve Clicquot, British-Japanese designer Keiichi Matsuda created multimedia sculpture ‘Prism’ in one of the V&A’s best kept secrets. The cupola at the top of the museum was transformed into a 47-panel geometrical construction feeding into London’s pool of readily available data. Anything from energy use at 10 Downing Street to a live route map of TFL’s transport network highlight the Internet’s force as the all encompassing source of information. Whilst Prism reflects the intricate networks of the virtual world, the cupola gives visitors a 360 degree view of real-time London.
