Museum of London, Sugar & Slavery
The immersive AV show conveys the conditions of Slavery.
The show takes over the gallery space projecting directly onto the exhibition panels, the artefacts, and at times down onto the audience, using video, gobos and lighting.
We worked with the curator to develop the script and collaborated with the sound artist Scanner to create the soundtrack.
We developed a simple, strong treatment combining text, abstract imagery, historic and contemporary images, gobos and lighting effects. We included photos of contemporary people and children in amongst the original images, to help visitors relate their lives to the issues raised. The result was a powerful and poignant piece that triggers an emotive response.
