Cliff, A. and Rinkinen, J. (2018) ‘Visualising electricity demand: use and users of a 3D chart from the 1950s’, Science Museum Group Journal. 9. DOI: 10.15180/180905/007
This paper unpacks a 3D chart of energy demand, acquired by the Museum of Science & Industry in 1990. Situating this chart within the history of energy visualisation, Cliff and Rinkinen explore what the chart enables us to comment on the object’s use and users, as well as the role of objects in telling stories about energy supply and consumption.
