In my other life, when working at my favorite museum in DC, I had plans to be an exhibition designer.
Well, these plans changed but if I only had time and focus to participate, this would be a very ‘out of this world’ competition.
The Museum of Science Fiction, which I never knew even existed (but not a physical place yet), and in the DC area, wants to know,
“Do you have a personal vision of the future?” (Washington Post credit Nancy Szokan)
MOSF is holding exhibition design competition for participants to enter their ideas for a preview space upon which the museum wants their facility to be built by 2017.
Their current postal address is:
Alexandria, VA 22313-0088
USA: Earth: Sol: Milky Way
Wacky and fun — this could be nearly in my backyard!!
The objective is for entrants to design this museum’s future space (no pun intended).
This blows your typical science fair out of the water and gives a chance for budding, as well as established designers, to call this MSOF’s new home a part of their vision.
The registration deadline is October 31. Submission deadline is November 30 and the winner will be announced December 15 along with a $1,000 price and a chance to be a MOsci-fi pioneer.
They don’t say much in their promo video, but you’ll have fun watching and counting how many sci-fi movies and references you’ll recognize.
