The State Archaeology Department of Schleswig-Holstein briefed us to have an outdated exhibition wall redesigned. This wall is intended to provide information on the Haithabu-Danewerk World Heritage Site to visitors in the museum as a supplement to the existing exhibition in the Danewerk Museum as well as to serve as a mobile visitor centre during special events. The exhibition wall consists of 15 panels in the stylised profile shape of the Danewerk, has a total length of 15.28 metres and a maximum height of 2.40 metres.
Our aim was to reduce the amount of text on the wall to a minimum and instead use memorable information graphics and projected animations to create a varied and visually attractive narrative. Various relevant topics from the Viking age are presented on the mixed media wall. A total of 12 topics have been edited journalistically and visually and are intended to evoke emotions in the audience by reporting on everyday life at that time. Questions like: Who were the Vikings? What was life like back then? How was trade conducted? are asked and answered.
