Switch the Docks - by the Institute of Imagination

Switch the Docks is an immersive, interactive light box installation that celebrates the heritage of the Royal Docks. The Institute of Imagination and Concept Shed worked together to create interactive light boxes which, when triggered, project illuminated images of intergenerational tales, bringing to life stories from the past, thoughts on the present and dreams about the future. Each light box sits inside a large wooden shipping crate, paying homage to the history of The Docks.

Capturing the past and inviting you to imagine the future, Switch the Docks will be dotted around the Royal Docks from October.
