Three years in the making, He Tohu is a new permanent exhibition of three iconic constitutional documents that shape Aotearoa New Zealand. Click Suite had the privilege of creating the digital interactives for this exciting and important exhibition. Before writing a single line of code, we undertook an extensive deep-dive of empathic user research and interviews, design thinking, and prototyping. From this process, three powerful digital concepts were conceived and then executed.
Simple in concept but logistically complex, the He Tohu kōrero is about bringing real dialogue to the topic of each of the three documents. Mosaics of square screens play out a huge diversity of recorded interviews, hand-curated into themed clusters.Over 600 individual interview clips are in the exhibition, with academics, experts, the famous and not so famous, the young and not so young. As you hear the wide range of views on offer, you're also encouraged to use the recording booth within the exhibition to record yourself - offer up your own kōrero and it may be displayed alongside all the others.
