The project

Whales of Iceland is the largest whale exhibition in Europe (and perhaps even the world), where visitors can learn about the giants of the sea in a calm and modern environment. The permanent exhibition features realsize models of each specie living in the North-Atlantic oceans.  A true giant experience.

Gagarin developed a multi-user installation where the biological aspects of a Minky Whale are reviewed i.e. head, mouth, baleen, brain, senses, lungs, heart, etc.  Three interactive panels are placed in front of a model of a Whale.  When visitors select different topics of interest from the panels, animated illustration with audio narration, are projected on the model, explaining the selected topics. Exhibition design:  Hallgrímur Friðgeirsson
