Unforgotten Soldiers

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Spatial & Experiential Design / Experiential Design / 2016

With no surviving veterans WWI is becoming a distant memory. We realised our connection to the past lives in old black-and-white pictures. For the 100th anniversary of Gallipoli, (New Zealand's first significant WWI campaign) History Channel wanted to keep the memory alive. Unforgotten Soldiers brought a black-and-white WWI picture to life on the streets of Auckland. The 8-hour performance was based on real soldier’s stories and an authentic soundscape brought their memories flooding back. It also tripled the usual donations for the Returned Service Association’s annual appeal in just one day.
