The New-York Historical Society: Holiday Express
New York, NY
The New-York Historical Society unveiled an annual holiday exhibit featuring their newly acquired Jerni toy collection. Throughout the first floor exhibit, batwin + robin created imaginative media content to compliment the various artifact displays. The exhibit designers at LHSA+DP reinvented the NYHS’s Rotunda room by placing a large central artifact case in the center of the space, encircled by four vertical media towers. b+r designed an immersive media experience in which the 24 HD screens that make up the four towers, created a backdrop for 10 defined scenes featured in the center case. This choreographed experience included video, sound design by Andy Green and timed case lighting by David Weiner Design.
“During winter holiday season, N-YHS transforms into a magical wonderland with “Holiday Express,” a dynamic installation from its renowned Jerni Collection of model trains, scenic elements, and toys from a bygone era.”
