Federal Writers' Project

Working with the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., we produced the exhibit Born in Slavery: Slave Narratives from the Federal Writers’ Project.

This exhibit contains more than 2,300 first-person accounts of slavery, over 500 photographs and three audio recordings of former slaves.

These narratives were collected in the 1930s as part of the Federal Writers’ Project of the Works Progress Administration (WPA). They were microfilmed in 1941 and assembled as the seventeen-volume Slave Narratives: A Folk History of Slavery in the United States from Interviews with Former Slaves.

This entire body of work, over 10,000 documents, is made available in this exhibit that includes a searchable database of the complete text of all of the narratives.

J. Walter Thompson

J. Walter Thompson, the world’s oldest advertising agency, wanted an exhibit on the history of advertising. It was to consist of twelve old style television sets showing an array of vintage commercials, interspersed with contemporary commentary on the world of advertising.

As the televisions they planned to use were in varying state of disrepair, we need dot find a reliable solution to deliver quality images on the twelve screens. To accomplish this we used three flat screen displays positioned behind the television set facade. Then, using our Flame graphic system, we produced a composite program for each flat screen that positioned the twelve synchronized video programs exactly behind their respective television faceplates.

The exhibit is shown here at The Museum of Television and Radio in New York city.

American Bar Association

This exhibit, at the American Bar Association's Museum of Law in Chicago, presents the visitor with the same situations that were faced by five United States Presidents.

It then asks what decision they would have made themselves, had they been President at that time.

Visitors are then shown a pie chart that breaks out the percentage of visitors who agreed with the Presidents decision and the percentage of visitors who opposed it.
