IWM First World War Galleries

Immersive interactive displays for IWM's new dedicated World War One Galleries

As part of the calendar of events marking the centenary of the First World War, we created a series of installations at the Imperial War Museum's First World War Galleries in London. Plunging visitors into a highly immersive experience, our work spans from evoking trench warfare and recruitment campaigns to making spaces for visitors to reflect on and contemplate the morals and ethics of war.

Using a mixture of projection, interactive tables and films, Squint/Opera contributed to eight major exhibits in the new galleries designed by Casson Mann. Working closely with the museum's experts we crafted experiences that would tell the stories of the war through the lives of those who experienced it first hand, thus serving as a palpable and relevant reminder of the reality of war from a human perspective.
