Capital Concerns is a 6 user interactive where a 6m digital representation of the Thames runs across the gallery with a stream of icons that float down the river. Visitors can unpack the icons to reveal issues that affect Londoners past and present.
The entire Charles Booth Map of wealth and poverty can be explored in a large interactive. Visitors can zoom in and out to view details and select from a number of hotspots to see translations of his journals along with contemporary photographs.
