CLIENT: Art and Exhibition Hall of the Federal Republic of Germany
At the threshold of science and art, the exhibition around the theme of outer space showed a range of exhibits from the areas of research, technology, history, art and literature. The curators deployed a poetic panorama of artefacts from space and astronomy, documentary material, movies, comics, space design, artistic works and multimedia installations which covered the enormous spectrum of the topic which has fascinated humanity for thousands of years and which has lost none of its appeal.
Reminiscent of the legendary cockpit of the spaceship Orion, one of the 60`s German TV series “Raumpatrouille“, whose controls had been created in part from re-purposed household appliances, 235 MEDIA realised the installation “Countdown minus 10” for the exhibition in the form of a “media cockpit”, an interactive table with a wall projection where visitors could take a flight through the history of space travel. Spread over five main themes, 235 MEDIA produced a total of 19 comprehensive animations which included surprising facts, images and films.
The installation “Countdown minus 10” was designed, created, editorially overseen, programmed and technically realised by 235 MEDIA.
“Outer Space has become a unique show because this is where facts and fiction, art and science really meet on a par.”
