Vietnam War Mural Touchscreens

For The New-York Historical Society's exhibition The Vietnam War: 1945 – 1975, Night Kitchen Interactive created a series of four touchscreen interactives. The exhibition displays two large murals, one depicting the War Front and another the Home Front, each packed with illustrations of historic events, people and places.

The accompanying gesture-enabled touchscreens allow visitors to pinch, zoom and pan through the murals' robust details. Through dozens of hotspots visitor can also explore the stories, archival photos and film that inspired the murals' imagery.

By providing the curated source content alongside the artist's interpretation, visitors are encouraged to engage closely with the murals and gain a deeper understanding of the complex stories they tell. We also adapted the War Front and Home Front interactives to be available on The New-York Historical Society's exhibition website.
