National Theatre: Museum of Austerity

Previewing at the BFI London Film Festival (LFF), Museum of Austerity is a heart-rending mixed reality installation from director Sacha Wares, using volumetric capture to preserve personal stories from the austerity era.

Through the HoloLens 2 headset, viewers were able to interact with holograms depicting the victims at various points across the room. Approaching the holograms activated an audio experience, featuring family members recounting personal stories.

The experience most recently picked up a Doc Award for Immersive Non-Fiction with ‘Museum of Austerity’ at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam.
