The exhibition explores A.A. Milne’s much loved Winnie-the-Pooh stories and E.H. Shepard’s emotive illustrations. Working with exhibition designers RFK Architects and theatre designer Tom Piper, Newangle produced a soundscape, two immersive projections and touchscreen interactive for the show.
Newangle replicated the feel of Shepard’s drawings in a digital river projection. Visitors can stand on a setworks bridge and play the famous ‘poohsticks’ game – guessing which pinecone or stick comes through the other side of the bridge first!
‘Piglet does a Very Grand Thing…’ is a film projected on the ceiling of the exhibition space. Norman Shelley’s reading of the episode, in which Owls House falls out of the tree, is illustrated by playfully animating text.
A soundscape of buzzing bees, rain on umbrellas and wind whistling through the trees of a hundred acre wood sets the atmosphere in the exhibition space.
