NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM VIENNA
As one of the world’s foremost museums of natural history, the Natural History Museum Vienna looks after 30 million artefacts and specimens that form the basis of extensive scientific research. Its oldest collections date back over 250 years.
For the reopening of the world’s largest and oldest collection of meteorites on 14 November 2012, the vast collection of extraordinary exhibits was expanded by the skillful inclusion of media stations, interactive hands-on stations and animations. In partnership with the curators of the Natural History Museum Vienna and a team of architects from Arno Grünberger/Spurwien, checkpointmedia has developed a contemporary form of knowledge transfer.
SFA created the graphics and illustrations for the whole exhibition. 10 documentary clips plus user interfaces for three interactive stations, as well as thousands of object labels.
This project was realized during employment at checkpointmedia.
