Norwegian Seabird Centre
On the 15th of June 2012, a new exhibition was opened in Værlandet‘s old boat Yard in Gestehamn. The exhibition shows through fourteen interactive stations that the fate of man is tied together with the fate of the seabirds along the coast of Norway. In short; The fact that our birds, our old way of life and our climate are threatened are intertwined, and they all result from our globalized way of life.
When designing the exhibition the goal was to, by provocative and evocative installations, motivate people to action rather than overload them with information or preach to them with morals. The focus was on interactivity rather than on a passive intake of information.
The installations are quite unique where tangibility plays a key role and adds to the playfulness of the experience, but we also used Kinect motion tracking for a “full-body interaction” when needed.
Together this creates a meaningful experience where guests are involved to be co-creators through multiple interactions.
The exhibition was designed by Gagarin and Batteriid Architects aﬅer winning a 1 prize in a competition for the project.
