Why make an interactive exhibit when you can make the exhibit interactive?
By blending cutting edge digital technology with historic artefacts, we create unexpected and magical experiences which amaze visitors and get them talking.
That’s what we did with Hurley’s camera, a beautiful brass and mahogany camera from the turn of the century which we turned into a time machine. When glancing through the viewfinder, visitors to Dulwich College are whisked back 100 years to witness the dramatic events of 18th October 1915 onboard Shackleton’s stricken vessel, Endurance.
And you don’t necessarily need digital media to transport your visitors back in time. The ‘view’ over 18th century Bristol we created for a window in the Charles Wesley Room was made using a simple lightbox vinyl, carefully cut into squares and applied pane by pane.
You can see some examples of our work below. If you’d like us to come up with some ideas for your museum or upcoming exhibition, call us on 01242 256970 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our immersive helms will whisk your visitors back in time via the magic of cutting edge 3D sound. A knight’s great helm transports the wearer into the heart of a medieval battle. A gladiator’s helmet pitches the listener into Rome’s Colosseum, surrounded by the cacophony of the baying mob. A WW1 helmet and gas mask will sink the listener ankle-deep into trench mud with the sound of shellfire exploding all around them.
2014-17 marks the centenary of Sir Ernest Shackleton’s epic attempt to be the first to cross the Antarctic Continent. Dulwich College, which houses a permanent exhibition dedicated to its former pupil, wanted an exciting exhibit to mark the event so we dreamt up a way to transport visitors to the Antarctic ice to join Shackleton’s crew during one of the key events of the doomed expedition.
The Charles Wesley Room
Built in 1739, John Wesley’s Chapel in Bristol is the oldest Methodist Chapel in the world. Above the chapel are the rooms once used by the Methodist movement’s itinerant preachers including Charles Wesley, John’s prolific hymn-writing brother. The custodians of the chapel approached us to create an experience in Charles Wesley’s room, to give visitors new insights into this pivotal figure in the early Methodist movement.
