D Day 70

About this project

National and local archives as well as interviews with Veterans and Civilians fed into model making, drawing and developmental work. Within the museum, models were developed with dialogue from visitors to the Museum. The final pieces has history etched on the surface of a series of pieces based on silhouettes and simplified forms based on landing craft. Details such as veterans handwriting, newspaper headlines, maps, ration packaging and notes from interviews were etched into the surface.
