The Reykjavik City Museum expanded its exhibition in 2022 to focus on the development of Reykjavik during the last century. A large-scale model was commissioned that shows downtown Reykjavik in 1906. Gagarin was asked to bring the model to life using mixed-reality technology.
As the model is the gallery's centerpiece, we did not want to steer the visitor’s gaze away from it, but rather enrich it using mixed reality. In essence, the visitor experience is doubled: once as it is with its rich details of the architecture and looks of the city in 1906, and a second time brought to life, showing the eventful life at that time.
