The project

To some extent the exhibition at the Science Museum was a natural continuation of an exhibition held at  the Palais de découverte in Paris in the autumn of 2004.  It was designed by Árni Páll Jóhannsson, but in this new version, Gagarin’s role was to add interactivity to the overall experience.  The main interaction was through “angels” (or human multimedia carriers) who were presented by actors from the theatre group Vesturport.  Their magical wings portrayed living images supporting the dialogue the angels had with visitors.

Other installations were a 21 metre long CGI film where visitors experienced Iceland’s ocean with its various types of whales breaking the surface, screens on Iceland’s language and finally few interactive stations on Iceland’s Nature, Culture and Technology.
