Project: Yaad-e-Jallian - An Experiential Museum at Red Fort
To educate the youth of India about the history and Jallianwala Bagh massacre, Yaad-e-Jallian museum was initialized. The museum uses latest interactive technology and multi-sensory experiences like projection mapping, sound echoes and touch panels. This helps in communicating the content to form real emotions of the visitors. Like survivor stories can help visitors to picture the plight of the survivors and incidents that powered the struggle towards complete Independence.
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.
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!
