The WW100 Scotland Exhibition ‘What Do We Learn from All Th1s?’
The major part of the Exhibition is a visual interpretation of 100 stories of people and events of WWI which has been created by 100 young people from across Scotland. The exhibition uses traditional printmaking techniques combined with innovative technology. It displays the matrices used to develop each of the artists’ 100 unique prints on wooden plinths arranged in a map of Scotland. Augmented reality technology enables visitors to explore each of the stories in detail with an iPad.
From individual acts of valour on the battlefield to naval tragedies off Scotland’s coast, from the thousands of workers filling factories at home to the brave members of the Scottish Women’s Hospitals at the Western Front, from innovations in areas such as surgery and aviation to the enduring work of poets and artists in the trenches, the project takes in a wide range of stories and subjects that will resonate throughout Scotland.
Following its installation at the Scottish Parliament, the first stop of the tour for the What Do We Learn From All Th1s? exhibition is at the Black Watch Museum in Perth from 23 September-25 October 2019.
Poppyscotland will be the custodian of the exhibition supporting its travels as it shares the stories of this unique map across venues in Scotland.
