On behalf of ACCIONA Producciones y Diseno, S.A. (APD), we just completed a large format, interactive media installation for the Wu Kingdom HelV Relics Museum in Wuxi / China. The completely projected 400 sqm space interactively tells the story of the Kingdom Wu.
Visitors are immersed in a 15-minute story about the rise of the Kingdom of Wu during the Spring and Autumn Period between 514–496 BC. We created a unique visual style as a mix of cinematic martial arts scenes shot in Shanghai combined with paint-style animations.
The linear storytelling is enhanced with interactive elements that reinforce the visitors’ feeling of being transported back in time, away to king HelV’s coming into power, his fight for hegemony, the victory at the battle of Boju and other great legends of that period.
That’s how we think a time machine should work.
