To do something in the early 1990s that was an interactive display, a designer had to be a software coder, while Hypercard wasn’t that accessible,’8 observes Redler, who had her own interactive design company before becoming a curator. At this point, ‘most of the small companies consulting in the field engaged a mix of people good at coding, and others who were good at graphics and animation, 37 Energy Ring, Energy Gallery, Science Museum, London, 2004 Above and right: The 40-metre (131-foot) long Energy Ring, a suitably Newtonian symbol announcing the permanent Energy Gallery (designed by Casson Mann), was a white LED screen wrapped and mounted in a 13-metre (43-foot) aluminium circle to form a suspended ring of dynamic white light.

It incorporated text, image enhancement and deconstruction, animation and raised images. The Multimedia Tour (July to September 2002), by contrast, was the first pilot project in the UK to use wireless technology to deliver content – videos, still images and text – to museum visitors.
