Canadian Museum of Human Rights

Atrocities Exhibit

Creative Direction + Design + Data Visualization + UX Strategy

Subluxed, in collaboration with Tactable LLC., designed a 24 user multitouch installation that lets visitors explore human rights atrocities around the globe spanning from the start of recorded history to present day.

The table consists of twelve 56 inch multi-touch displays. The illustrations below represent four collaborative workspaces. All of the atrocities are represented on both the map and timeline visualizations. A temporal flashlight scans over the timeline and as it passes over specific atrocities, they are highlighted simultaneously in the timeline and the map, implicitly providing temporal and geographic information about them. When highlighted, key information about that atrocity emerges from the map location and stays displayed while it is in this active state. Information is available in both English and French with equal prominence.
