8 channel interactive audio installation.

In the “Famine Ships” installation, touch sensitive cards with photos of famine ship passengers drive an intimate storytelling experience.  Other environmental installations, controlled by docents, yield the echo of conversations from the 1860s, in rooms that have been restored to the look of that period.
