An exhibition inspired by Japanese love hotel. This unique context provided the framework for this exhibition which is organised around notions of reception, room and reward. The ‘guests’ pursue a selection of rooms from a push-button backlit display before hurrying past the robotic jellyfish bobbing in the water feature. On departure the ‘guests’ could peruse a selection of Japanese collectibles, designer homes and goods that could be theirs if they have enough points left on their love hotel customer loyalty scheme card.
