On Monday 9th January 2017 I went to the Victoria & Albert (V&A) museum in South Kensington, London to see the ‘You Say You Want a Revolution? Records and Rebels 1966-1970’

The exhibition explores the 1960s era defining significance and the impacts of what happened in the 1960s. This is shown through performances, artwork, music, fashion, design, film & political activism.

The exhibition consists of many different rooms which we walked around. We were given a headset which recorded where we were walking and as we walked into different sectors of the exhibition the voice over/ background music would change in order to fit the section.

I feel as though the exhibition was fairly useful for me as it helped me think of some ideas for ‘psychedelia’ as it was a key subculture in the 1960s, therefore it allowed me to brainstorm many different ideas. The main features I found interesting were the use of vibrant colours and the bizarre ‘circle spiral’ heads on the mannequinns, I found this very influential because after the use of psychedelic drugs the users head isn’t ‘normal’ and so this is an interesting technique that I could use.
