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.


这是一个不存在的博物馆,里面收藏的所有东西都是无形的。

四个贩卖机里是四个不同的空间,陈列着不同种类的物质,包裹着不同的精神内核。通过购买、售卖、交换等一系列常规的商业⾏为,你可以得到⼀个⾮常规的“商品”——或是身体的感觉、或是记忆,或是体验一个陌生⼈一天的机会,或是⼀⾸只属于你当下状态的⾳乐。

在网站主页的设计上,我选择将四个复古的自动贩卖机并置,将虚拟博物馆概念具像化、微量化,用四个贩卖机代表四个不同空间,更有一种时空穿梭的神秘感。
