Exposed Wounds

This interactive, contained within an exhibition, brings alive objects which are the weapons of war. Rather just look at a grenade, and wonder, you can see the real thing, select it, and then see a life size animation of exactly how that weapon affects the body when it hits.

Each weapon shows a different scenario with gruesome, realistic and medically accurate results. Once each animation is played, we also see the “medical case file” of a real soldier who was wounded or even killed by the same weapon – bringing home the reality of war at a very personal level.
