Ötscher:reich is an exhibition about a specific region in Austria based around a mountain, the „Ötscher“.
The animation takes a new approach on info graphics, combining historical map data modern design and atmospheric sounds. The storyline was developed with the curator of the exhibition and historians. The hardest part was to find balance between easy to grasp visual information and historical accuracy.
The animation is based on map data of the region and linked to a time line. Telling thousands years of history in four minutes is a big challenge, but visitor really appreciate it.
