Stacks Image 833
This experience recounts the 1999 tornado that tore through downtown Little Rock. Survivors recollect their experiences of the storm and its aftermath in this immersive basement environment. The voices are intercut with an archival television weather broadcast recorded on the night of the tornado. Surround sound audio and visual effects out the basement window give visitors the sensation of a tornado tearing apart the structure above.
