‘Evidence in Rock’ now open in Alta in Norway

Kvorning Design & Communication has masterminded the World Heritage Rock Art Centre – Alta Museum’s new 150 sq.m permanent exhibition, ‘Evidence in Rock’, about Alta’s world heritage, rock art, which has opened in Alta in Finnmark county, Norway.

A modern, interactive exhibition about the rock art of Alta, which includes UNESCO-protected rock carvings and rock paintings made approximately 7,000 to 2,000 years ago. Alta has Northern Europe’s largest occurrence of rock art from the hunter-gatherer society. It constitutes the most important evidence of settlements and human activity so far north during prehistoric times. And as a result it was added to UNESCO’s world heritage list as early as 1985.

The exhibition offers plenty of interaction and entertainment for everyone. Here, for example, visitors young and old can sculpt out a rock carving, go exploring in the history of Alta in the ’Landscape Game’ and generate luminescent rock carvings in the dark by lamplight. ‘Evidence in Rock’ offers experiences and activities that will wow, inform, generate debate and provide food for thought. The exhibition also includes a selfie booth with Northern Lights, buttons and infographics that conjure up and animate the magic of the spirit world of the past.

Harriet Hagan, Manager of the World Heritage Rock Art Centre at Alta Museum, states:

“With ‘Evidence in Rock’ we invite the public to enjoy experiences, participation and exploration, while at the same time encouraging their curiosity and engagement. The exhibition provides an altogether different experience to previous exhibitions, and visitors will learn about rock art by using both their hands and their heads. The museum has been working on the exhibition for many years, and we are extremely proud that we can now show it off to both the local population and all our visitors.”

The exhibition was won as part of an international competition.

‘HISTORY COLLECTION’ IN LEGO HOUSE

When LEGO House, the toy company’s brand-new experience centre in LEGO hometown Billund, opens on 28. September 2017 – Kvorning Design & Communication has a finger in the pie. In close collaboration with LEGO, Kvorning has designed and produced the ‘History Collection’ which showcases all the highlights since 1932.

In a continuous, close collaboration with the LEGO Group’s ever so committed and inspired employees within the historic branch, Kvorning Design and Communication has designed and developed the exhibitions for the History Collection in the base of the LEGO House; a new 12,000 square metre experience centre in LEGO’s home town Billund.

Explore childhood memories

As grown-ups and kids head down the stairs, or descend by the elevator, into the basement and the ‘History Collection’, they are welcomed by a 2 x 2 metre logotype. The visitors will explore their own childhood through the gems of the exhibition: LEGO products will convey the company’s long history though significant milestones, drawings and models. Here is everything a true Lego fan could possibly imagine. Of course, there are also animations of kids playing in classic scenarios, familiar to most visitors either from themselves or their kids.

LEGO® models and boxes through decades

Halfway through the collection visitors will see a light which lures them into a room resembling the interior of a giant LEGO brick. The room features an exhibition of original LEGO models and boxes through decades. Regardless of age, anyone can find a cherished LEGO box, either as a physical model or on the interactive table displaying more than 5,000 LEGO boxes. In two, big round showcases and along the walls are hundreds of original models and boxes on display to stir dear memories. ‘History Collection’ is a true treasury which will steal your heart and mind.
