Concept and content production for video-, game- and audiostations in the polar bear world of the zoo vienna. The so called “Polar Dome” is located in the center of the new enclosure where visitors can watch polar bears, seals and penguins on different floors. Here at the information center visitors can find out more about polar bears, the impact of climate change on polar bears and their sensitive artic habitat.

The exhibition design and concept was planned by Studio Kudlich. Checkpointmedia installed all media stations. SFA created the content for all mediastations such as the soundscape in the “Polar Dome” (a collage of polar sounds and animal voices), assets for an interactive kinectgame “Catch the krill”, an animation of bear paws on the wall as well as five documentary films. The highlight of the exhibition is the interactive table in the center of the dome.  Here, children of all ages can play several games (“Wall of ice”, “Watch out for the penguins”, “Sail to the Pole”), paint a picture of aurora in the sky, or learn more about the history of polar exhibitions in the „Race to the poles“.
