The Inexistent Museum

Website, 2016

The Inexistent Museum is a fictional museum which exists only online to offer viewers spiritual essence. The website consists of 4 sections: Feeling Shop, Memory Store, One Day Exchange and Music X Mood. By a series of standard commercial operation including selling, purchasing and exchanging, viewers can get unconventional goods, such as feelings, memories, the experience of living a stranger’s life, or a song that matches your state.

For the project, I developed the whole concept and designed the branding and website. For the homepage, I displayed four retro vending machines side by side, concreting and micro-analyzing the idea of a virtual museum. Vending machines represent four different space, which has the mystery like time traveling.
