Whales of Iceland
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 realize models of each species 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.
