Stored in a Bank Vault is a dynamic installation, which forms part of the Brighton Digital Festival. It provides a unique opportunity for the viewers to explore the secret hideout of a group of Bank Robbers and attempt to deduce their activities. It is now entering its final week of exhibition after opening on the 23rd of September.

During the preview of the exhibition, I had the unique opportunity of working as a tour guide, taking people from Lighthouse to Grey Area, where the installation is taking place. It was clear on the tour that people were excited about seeing the Project but had no idea what to expect. Some thought it was going to be an exhibition with paintings of Bank heists while others deduced that it would be a look into a Bank Robbers hideout. When we got there though everyone was quite surprised at the level of detail that went into the creation of the space and the amount of research that it must have required to pull it off, it seemed like Time’s Up left nothing to chance and this made the experience all the more special.

Upon getting to Grey Area, I was amazed to see how enthusiastic people were about rummaging through the material in the space, all caution thrown to the winds as everyone put their thinking caps on and got to work deciphering the clues around them. This of course led to some interesting theories about what the robbers were up to, from exotic artifact smugglers to gold thieves. I personally am yet to come up with a concrete theory but I know it probably has something to do with a Bank?…
