American Air Museum

Digital exhibits that connect faces to names and identify forgotten heroes

The American Air Museum has an enormous archive of historical information and imagery that needed to be shared with visitors in a highly engaging way. Working with Redman Design and the Imperial War Museum, Duxford, Squint/Opera developed an ingenious answer to this question - that the public could make a contribution to the archives and therefore expand the exhibits. The touchscreen exhibit we created enlists thousands of visitors to become 'virtual volunteers' by tagging images and sorting them into sub-collections.

The 24 screen digital roll of honour encourages guests to contribute through the American Air Museum website by adding photos to the names of those who lost their lives in service. Over time, both exhibits will grow and become richer and more informative.
