Prix Pictet: Confinement

Website design for Confinement, Prix Pictet’s online exhibition that showcased photographic responses to the global situation from more than 40 photographers previously shortlisted or recipients of PrixPictet photography award. Confinement contains works from photographers such as Nadav Kander, Richard Mosse, Rinko Kawauchi and Nyaba Léon Ouedraogo, among others.

In this project, we tried to answer the question: how could a digital exhibition feel like? For this, we explored forms of bringing into the digital ideas around collectivity, real-time experience, navigation across spaces, and curated displays. The proposal stays away from the many 3D environments popping up during that time, and rethink how could these questions translate into the format of a website. Considering a very diverse viewership, we introduced tools that allowed for different ways of experiencing the collection, inviting users to decide the level of detail or focus they want to have in the display.
