Oil and gas
A permanent exhibition about the exciting story of the Norwegian oil industry was opened on 13 March 2014 at the Norwegian Museum of Science and Technology in Oslo. The architects at CoDesign in Stockholm are the exhibition designers and Gagarin was hired by them to design and develop interactive installations for this exhibition. The exhibition covers the Norwegian oil deposit and its ramifications. It investigates the economic, environmental, scientific and societal consequences of Norway's vast oil reserves.
The exhibition ties together 5 themes or perspectives on oil that runs through the exhibition. They are represented by five colour-coded pipes that take the visitor through history from the creation of oil millions of years ago to the future and what that might hold for Norway depending on different scenarios. The pipes run parallel and sometimes connect at crucial tipping points in history but also diverge and expand to tell their own stories.
