Solution

Very few people know about the sequence of events that lead to the Black Day in the Indian History and the impact it had on India’s freedom struggle. Based on such theme, an experiential museum built by Tagbin Services Pvt Ltd at the Red Fort in Delhi was inaugurated. Using 3D images and other interactive solutions, various experiences were created that depicts the very incident of Jallianwala Bagh. Laser Projections Mapping shows us a glimpse of how the day began with the celebration of Baisakhi and how it turned out to a tragic event. 3D wall images are also used where the image changes from General Dyer to Michael O’Dwyer showing the people responsible.

Impact

Using such experience-focused museum, the millennials of the country could walk through the history and experience the events that took place. Using powerful symbolic elements like, ‘The Jallianwala Bagh Well’ and ‘Video Projection Mapping’ on a broken red brick wall at the entrance could make viewers connect to the history, almost giving them goosebumps!
