At the Lest We Forget exhibition in Abu Dhabi, a workshop-type space was created as a nod to the university context where the Lest We Forget photo project first took shape. In it, three custom-designed interactive games brought the art of archiving, sorting, and tagging photographs to life, shining a playful light on a subject that could otherwise be considered dry.
