How can we make fossilised remains come to life? How can we show museum visitors what the life of extinct animals was actually like?
Palorama answers these questions.
Using 3D projection mapping, an animated reconstruction was projected directly onto the fossils, making them come back to life before the eyes of museum visitors.
We chose this technique because of its ability to transcend the physical surroundings and engage the visitor into another world, like creating a window into the underwater world of the Triassic.
Our animation allows visitors to observe the Saurians in their natural habitat and conveys scientific information about palaeontology and geology in a new and thrilling way.
The animation is permanently displayed at the Fossils Museum of Monte San Giorgio (Meride, CH).
