INTERACTIVE INSTALLATIONS / ART+COM / 2003
MARITIME HISTORY / DEUTSCHES TECHNIKMUSEUM BERLIN

With the opening of its new wing in December 2003 giving it 6,600 square metre of exhibition space, Berlin’s German Technology Museum now has the second largest shipping exhibition in Europe.

As part of a series of installations for the Museum ART+COM developed two moveable screens to enable visitors to scan a model of a 17th century warship. The Vasa, a sumptuous, richly ornamented ship of a Swedish king, sunk after only 500 meters on it‘s maiden journey in 1628 due to mistakes in the construction.

One screen is positioned on the port side of the ship, capable to be angled up and down, left and right and so functions as a magnifying glass to explore the rich details of the decoration. The second screen is positioned on a rail along the side of the ship and can be moved along it to scan the diverse sculptures.

Another component are twenty-six multimedia stations that accompany the shipping and navigation exhibits and allow visitors to navigate via touchscreen through in-depth information The terminals deal not only with nautical themes ranging from piloting and keeping time at sea but also with issues such as emigration and the slave trade.

My part was refining and detailing the concept and art direction of the screendesign.
