Project: The American Presidency: A Glorious Burden

For this exhibit at the Smithsonian National Museum of American History, Redmon developed interactive exhibits that allow the public to give a historical speech as President of the United States and participate in visitor opinion polls. Visitors are able to select from three well-known speeches: Franklin D. Roosevelt's inauguration addresses, John F. Kennedy's inauguration addresses, and Ronald Reagan's call to President Gorbachev to tear down the Berlin Wall. Visitors can also participate in an ongoing poll of their opinions on a variety of topics regarding public policy and the overall popularity of past presidents. Visitor input is tallied with previously solicited opinions and then displayed on two large displays.

Produced in 2000.
