An interactive post-apocalyptic market place

About

Welcome to Happy Redoubt, by artists Juneau Projects, is an interactive installation that will transform the Inigo Rooms at Somerset House for six weeks; immersing visitors in a soft apocalypse where tasks are completed in order to win currency that can be spent in the encampment. Visitors will be able to explore this ‘post-apocalyptic marketplace', create and trade artefacts, earn currency, gain skills for a new world and help shape a new future. This is an open-ended installation that will grow and develop as audiences and participants respond and contribute to it. Populated by professors from Kings College London, Happy Redoubt will offer a series of events exploring possible futures, using their academic expertise to predict how the future might look. The installation will be open to all from Wed — Sunday, 12 - 6pm Post-apocalyptic events will take place every Wednesday at 6.30pm and Saturday at 2pm, throughout 6th November- 15th December.
