Which character would you be from Star Wars? Which race? Which type of warrior [I mean who wants to be a diplomat?].
A Tatooine bounty hunter? A Wookiee Jedi Knight? Or maybe an Ewok with X-Wing fighter-pilot skills? A Twi’lek Cantina member? Well now you can find out. Indulge your creativity whilst you build your personal Star Wars Hero or baddie. Visitors of all ages explore their own identities and learn about the forces that shape them in this exciting character design quest. Using a smart technology bracelet, every person is asked to respond to a series of identity questions at interactive stations throughout the exhibition. These character-design stations are interwoven seamlessly with the exhibition’s collection and scientific content and form the backbone of the experience.
Star Wars Identities explores the theme of identity using ten components that help make us who we are: species, genes, parents, culture, mentors, friends, events, occupation, personality, and values. These ten components are grouped into the exhibition’s three main sections, which follow the progression of identity from childhood to adulthood: first Origins, then Influences, and finally Choices. This thematic backbone gives structure not only to the educational content of the exhibition but to the STAR WARS Identities Exhibition London O2 as well.
From a scientific perspective, visitors learn how these components affect identity. Ten videos, one per component, combine clips from Star Wars with animated graphics explaining how each component plays a part in shaping who we are—“we” in this case referring simultaneously to the fictional characters of the Star Wars universe and to the visitors themselves.These videos were developed in collaboration with the Montreal Science Centre and a team of experts practicing in a variety of scientific fields, including genetics, neuropsychology, health sciences, and psychology.
