American Spirits

September 2012National Constitution Center, Philadelphia, PA

How much of culture is vice?

American Spirits: The Rise and Fall of Prohibition took National Constitution Center visitors back in time to a dangerous and thrilling era. Three immersive experiences created by Moey completed the journey. Visitors tried a secret knock on a Speakeasy Door. A shifty-eyed virtual doorman allowed them in if they got it right. Visitors also joined the Police Lineup for a mugshot photo opportunity. And they marveled at Wayne Wheelers Amazing Amendment Machine, a funhouse version of the 18th Amendment’s creation and passage. The Machine combined kinetic sculpture and embedded video to convey the legislative process in a captivating way.
