Queen Mary’s Hospital

Journal Category: 

The Archive & Museum Group of Queen Mary’s Hospital Roehampton commissioned two separate exhibitions over the course of three years. The exhibitions focused on the hospital’s specialisms including the famous Limb surgery, Prosthetics and Amputee rehabilitation unit. These two exhibitions were called ‘Repairing the Ravages of War 1915-1960′ and ‘A Very Special Hospital 1960-1998′, both of which served the purpose of maintaining awareness of the hospital’s distinguished reputation past and present. The exhibition makes use of historic cine film, artefacts, photographs and oral history recordings. My involvement and responsibilities in this project included:

  • Selecting, digitising and editing archive cine film footage to create a looped educational video.
  • Designing and manufacturing a mobile media stand for a mini travelling version of the exhibition.
  • Compiling and editing oral history recordings and designing and developing a touch screen listing post kiosk.
  • Digitising and touching up archive photographs for use in the interpretation panel designs.
  • Working with the museum archivist to help select artefacts for display cabinets.
