We All Fall Down: The Great Plague and Fire of London
Plague of London, Fire of London, Yersinia Pestis, The Plague, Daniel Defoe, Samuel Pepys
For our project we have decided to create an interactive art gallery containing artistic portrayals of the black plague as well as the great fire. Each chapter (what is the plague?, how it was handled, the aftermath, and what we learned from it.) will be visually represented as a clickable art work. Once one of these artworks is clicked on a written description will appear underneath which gives insight and context to the work of art. Instead of describing information of the artist or the piece however, we instead plan to give the works a historical context to better understand the situation of the Plague that the works are depicting.
