Completed Project

Taking Care of Brooklyn

KAKTI × Center for Brooklyn History × Little Mega

May–June 2019

There are 9 touch displays installed at the Center for Brooklyn History (née Brooklyn Historical Society) in the lower level of their exhibition Taking Care of Brooklyn: Stories of Sickness and Health. The full exhibit was designed and produced by Little Mega and I coded the interactive content.

The exhibit includes a massive 86-inch touch screen with an interactive historical timeline.

It opened 1 June 2019, and is scheduled to run for 3 years, through May 2021.

Since the exhibit opened, the Brooklyn Historical Society was absorbed into the Brooklyn Public Library, and a global pandemic made it much more difficult to visit a museum anywhere in the world.
