Moments that Survive

Everytown for Gun Safety

For Everytown for Gun Safety Blue Telescope developed Moments that Survive, a tablet app designed to work in concert with the Gun Violence Memorial at the National Building Museum.

The Gun Violence Memorial Project features four glass houses containing objects representing the man gun-related deaths that occur monthly in the US. Our tablet-based interactive exhibit brings these objects to life, realizing the stories on the Moments that Survive website.

Visitors to the museum click on names and images of objects to learn more about their history and the life of their previous owner.

These objects, which appeared as talismans in the houses, become points of connection for viewers.

Visitors are also given the opportunity to add reactions, indicating they bear witness to these stories and to develop community bonds.
