The interactive exhibit revealed the secrets of St James’s. Made from Jesmonite and brass, it is a three-dimensional top-down map of St James’s including buildings, roads, and key landmarks. When a key landmark is touched, the map triggers an associated cabinet to light up and reveal an artefact and unique story related to the area.
Visitors can discover where John and Yoko met, or where James Bond’s infamous shaken, not stirred martini was created. Investigate the spots where spectacles, the bowler hat and Scotch eggs were all invented.The exhibit serves as not only a piece of interactive artwork but a dynamic way of educating residents and passers-by about this unique area of London.
