The Adventurer´s Table
Work space and axis of reflection
We designed and coordinated the so-called “Adventurer´s Table” for the Regional Exhibition of Lower Austria 2011 (“Conquer, Discover, Experience”).
Numerous co-partners, scientists, scenographers and multimedia-designers contributed to creating the concept for the Adventurer´s Table.
The „ Adventurer´s Table“ not only shapes the architecture of the room and gives the room its formal structure but is also a guidepost, an axis of reflextion and work space.
There is more to putting together an exhibit than the mere field-work of collecting of objects and then displaying them in a showcase. It also includes the process of interpretation that the visitor can retrace at the “Adventurer´s Table”. Parts of the exhibition deal with collecting and classifying, others deal with navigation and mapping. Historic globes are arranged all along the sides of the table (length 28 meters) which symbolize the different perceptions of the world in modern times.
