Client: Splash and Ripple
This innovative project for the Holburne Museum in Bath, created to be used in nearby Sydney Gardens, was designed by Splash and Ripple as a part game, part story, part immersive sound scape. The stories of real characters from the Garden’s history are accessed via a special ‘Georgian Listening Device’, in the shape of a small treasure chest.
One of our specialist scenic artists art-worked simple wooden boxes to create convincing replicas of a mystical Georgian treasure chest. Visitors are invited to carry the treasure boxes around the gardens listening to the ‘ghosts’ whose stories are broadcast through a GPS enabled Minirig audio player concealed in the box, each location triggering a different story.
