Lighting control

Does anyone have any design plans to share for self-shuttering
viewer-activated exhibition frames or cases for flat artworks? This
is for consideration for travelling exhibition to sites where light
levels cannot be guaranteed below 50 lux. Ideally, the mechanism for
a self-closing curtain or lid would be self-contained, low-tech,
non-electrified, extremely reliable, discreet in profile, and as
easy to install as a typical frame/case. Simple exterior curtains
are not ideal as there is no guarantee that the curtain would be
closed completely and continuously at all sites. Direct replies or
references email are welcome.
