Hamilton: The Exhibition

The world turned upside down

Chicago, USA


To capture the dramatic Battle of Yorktown, we worked with David Korins Design to reimagine how physical and digital objects might interact in exhibit spaces.

Our team combined pixel-perfect projection mapping with a bespoke system of hidden trackways to bring the battle to life. Hand-painted figurines slid silently across historic maps and were projected onto an antique war-room table, while a dramatic score, spatial audio, and an original script completed the experience. Audiences were transported to Yorktown, Virginia, in 1781, when the world turned upside down.
