Exquisite Corpse: The Mütter Museum
Exquisite Corpse: Mütter Museum
Satellite Exhibit

An interactive satellite kiosk spotlighting the Mütter Museum’s temporary exhibit:
Imperfecta, which is about previous perceptions of teratology and of the supernatural.
The visual language consists of Victorian type, colors, and woodblock prints.
Inspired by the Surrealist drawing game, the triangular prisms can be turned to create
new monsters and involves the viewer by using their reflections. Promotional materials
included are invitations to the opening ceremony for Mütter members as well as a
party hat for those who attend the event.

The Problem
The Mütter Museum contains subject matter that is disturbing to a general amount of
people. However, they approach these topics by presenting them in an objective way
and asking the viewer questions that provoke conversation. The kiosk must draw a
line between amusement and education as well as lead users to the museum. I
chose Dilworth Park in City Hall, Philadelphia as the location to put this kiosk in
because there is constant traffic from visitors and commuters. 

Inspiration and Branding
This satellite kiosk draws its typography from custom lettering as well
as newsprint fonts from the 19th century. In addition to this, colors were selected
for their popularity in Victorian homes as well as their ability to stand out against
the grey concrete in City Hall. These elements were used in both the ephemera
and in the wayfinding for Exquisite Corpse.  
Exhibit's Location at Dilworth Park in City Hall, Philadelphia.
Party hat for those who attend the opening ceremony of the exhibit and mailers for members of the Mütter.
