CELEBRATING BIRD MIGRATION
Our aim was to create an exhibition telling the amazing story of bird migration in all its aspects. We wanted to focus the visitor’s attention on the very species that could be observed in the field on the day of their visit by using our novel Bird Year Algorithm. Our exhibition design provided experiences for all target groups - from the hardcore birder to the reluctant kid, who’d rather spend the day on the beach. Our goal was to inspire, amaze, and inform through novel technologies, skilled didactics, and a deep passion for birds. We wanted to open people’s eyes, so that they actually notice bird migration on their next trip to the Spit, the North Beach, or even back home.
In 2015 our team prequalified among five other teams in the International Design Competition. In the fall of 2015 two teams were selected for the final phase and we received a second place in the winter of 2016. The winner was ART + COM.
Kollision was part of a team consisting of Ambiente A/S, Natural History Museum, and Proshop Europe. Our role was lead designers, communication strategy, branding, interaction design, and exhibition control.
