Museum of London partner with Guildhall School for interactive exhibition
Museum of London is partnering with Guildhall School of Music and Drama to create an immersive digital world, Beasts of London. The exhibition aims to take visitors on a journey through time so they can experience London’s history with furry inhabitants, ‘the beasts’.
Inspired by objects in the Museum’s collection, Beasts of London will be a fully interactive digital installation that will incorporate live music composed and performed by Guildhall School and video projection mapping. It is led by creative director of the school’s live events unit, Dan Shorten. Artists on the BA Video Design for Live Performance programme have also contributed.
