Extraordinary Heroes at the Imperial War Museum tells the fascinating and inspiring personal stories of Victoria and George Cross awardees.Everybody's Story
Clay produced a series of seven interactive terminals telling the personal stories surrounding each awardee and their heroic action.
Each terminal describes a ‘quality’ of bravery by which all the awardees were grouped: Boldness, Aggression, Endurance, Initiative, Leadership, Sacrifice and Skill.
Visitors used the lower screen as a controller to browse through and see the content displayed in large format on the upper screen. Content included Victor comics, re-animated in a contemporary style, historic archive recordings, photographs and stories from the time.Portraits
A series of seven animated films were produced showing the portraits of all 241 awardees. Displayed on consecutive screens across the space, the animations gently zoom and crossfade the portraits, creating a sombre march of heroes through the gallery.
