Mace sponsors 'Phantom Railings' at London's British Museum
Mace has announced its sponsorship of the British Museum's "Phantom Railings" project - a public art intervention which is designed to focus on London's wartime memories.
The multi-disciplinary firm is currently involved with the development of the museum's new World Conservation and Exhibition Centre, which is scheduled to open in 2014.
"Phantom Railings" is an interactive sound sculpture using the movement of pedestrians to "evoke the ghost of a lost iron fence" removed during the 1940s and never replaced.
A spokesperson said: "In an effort to make the absence of the railings evident, sensor-based acoustic devices created resemblance to the sound of a stick being run against an iron fence."
