21st Century Kids: Justine Cooper ‘The call of the wild’ 2006

The call of the wild 2006 is a touch screen interactive set in a natural history museum similar to those seen in some of Justine Cooper’s art works. The aim of the interactive is to set trapped animals free from drawers and lockers, returning them to their natural habitat. The call of the wild is presented inside an immersive installation space that replicates the collections of museums in a playful and colourful way appealing to all young Gallery visitors.
