The permanent exhibit is located in the heart of President Kennedy’s living memorial. It uses the latest in digital technology to explore how the arts infused and informed the Kennedy presidency.
Studio TheGreenEyl collaborated with Abbott Miller of Pentagram and architects KieranTimberlake to develop three interactive experiences for this exhibition:
“Dynamic Portraiture” introduces the historic Kennedy portrait by expressionist painter Elaine de Kooning and enables visitors to create their own digital self-portraits in her distinctive style and palette.
“Dinner at the White House” features a series of touchscreen “plates” that represent the prominent cultural figures who attended Kennedy dinners. Commonalities among the guests emerge as graphics link up on the table top, and visitors can create their own guest lists.
“The Power of Words” presents keywords from landmark Kennedy speeches on a mirrored wall, where they come together to form full sentences as people approach.
Collaboration with Pentagram, KieranTimberlake and Batwin and Robin.
