Reminiscence of the anniversary throughout a digital age

Virtual Display / Fundação Calouste Gulbenkian

Today, we live in a digital world – no matter what age, we can feel the influence of technology around us. This wasn’t the case when the Calouste Gulbenkian Museum opened in 1969. Somehow this particular museum resonates with us, because it tells us a story, a passion of a person who had an impact on us all.

This proposal uses 3D animations of the museum and its surroundings, historic photos of the opening of the museum and footage of today’s museum. Those ingredients were combined in a certain way, each of them representing a phase of the museum. The digital age is present in the video, the Polaroid pictures symbolising the old and the digital video shown within them representing the new.
