Keep the dist-dance – techtoday19

With the sour tang of dry ice, pounding dance music and more strobe lights in one room than are normally on the main stage of Glastonbury it may finally be an opportunity for some hedonism. With strict social distancing and hand sanitisation, of course.

Its not for the faint-hearted, designer Adam Smith said of the sensory Chemical Brothers experience he has created with his studio partner Marcus Lyall. We were trying to bring some of the visceral feeling you get from a live show into a different setting.

The duo have created the explosive final room of an exhibition exploring the history of electronic music, opening at the Design Museum in London on Friday.

The show was due to open in the spring but lockdown meant exhibits have been sitting in boxes for five months, waiting to be unleashed on the British public.

To begin with, 60 people an hour will be allowed in after booking time slots. A one-way system has been introduced, there is enhanced cleaning and face coverings are compulsory. Signs on the floor urge visitors to keep the dist-dance.

Some reopened museums have abandoned audio guides but Design Museum curators said visitors need headphones to get the full experience.
