Exhibition: Svanhovd Bear Centre
Client: Bioforsk, Passvik, Norway
Close to the Russian border in the far north east part of Norway, bears rule the wilderness under close observation by man. At the Bioforsk research site in Passvik, Expology developed and produced an exhibition communicating the scientific work taking place here, the life of bears and how they affect human culture.
In a combination of analog and digital installations, visitors can learn about how wild bears live and try to work with DNA analysis from samples of bear droppings and hair. The central piece in the exhibition is a ‘sleeping’ bear that you can scan to get information about the different parts and functions of its body.
