Fragments of a Fictional Place

From September 2018-April 2019, Simon was V&A Dundee’s inaugural designer in residence. During his tenure Simon created the foundations of an exciting multi-artform project that blends theatre with exhibition, subverting the visitor experience with a fictional narrative that builds on game-design practice and his passion for experimental storytelling.

As part of the V&A output, Simon wrote a series of short-form character stories, some of which can be found in this eight-page tabloid.


This project has entered next stage development with the National Theatre of Scotland.

Here’s a few snaps from the theatre production – exploring jigsaw narrative structure and minimalist sets and narrative groupings.
