Accessible kaleidoscope. Zoo Mari was a temporary exhibition pavilion, presenting Barcelona’s new oceanic zoo during its reconstruction. The exhibition developed by ACCIONA PRODUCCIONES Y DISEÑO S.A. (formerly GPD S.A.) consisted of two parts: One in the entrance area that stretched out like a long corridor and introduced themes of the newly constructed zoo and informed about current projects. The other one was the audiovisual highlight at the end of this corridor: a space 4,5m high, the completely mirrored walls of which were tilted in a 71° angle. Six projectors played images on the 70 sqm floor, creating the illusion of infinity and being lifted out of space and time.
TMS developed the exhibitions’ media content. Inspired by Antoni Gaudí’s original style that plays with smooth organic patterns and that is inextricably linked to the city of Barcelona, an accessible immersive kaleidoscope was created. The visitor was immersed into a colourful and constantly transforming world of animals and underwater life. One moment he was in the middle of a school of fish, then he walked through a thick mangrove forest, the next moment he joined a camel caravan in the savannah at sunset and suddenly he found himself face to face with a chameleon. Also on display were urban scenarios, famous architectural sites and Catalan mosaics. Visitors of all ages were touched by this overwhelming beauty of images. The sound concept was developed by the sound designers of BLUWI. The interactive floor was an installation by Emotique S.L from Barcelona.
