INFORMATION ABOUT THE PROJECT
Objective of the exhibit
Trnka’s Garden 2 was originally designed as a celebration of the 100th anniversary of Trnka’s birth. “Our objective was to turn the member of an audience into an active performer who finds himself or herself in the very heart of the story“, Matyáš Trnka explains the concept.
Basic description of the exhibit
The exhibit is formed by ten scenes that are based on the original book. There are either animations that move the original drawings of Jiří Trnka, or playful and interactive elements. It took the creative team, including a sound designer, animator, technician and a programmer, almost three years to make the “Original Cybernetoscope” that combines the displayed artefacts with an unusual form of projection.
There are projections on the walls, on the ceiling, on the floor, in the closet, and also in the head of the dwarf. Moreover, the individual attractions have built-in sensors that respond to the movement of the visitor. The visitor can thus meet a speaking whale, look inside the large dwarf using a special telescope or find out what the “Barking Phone” is. There are elephants riding skateboards who can dance rock and roll and wall the line. The wise whale explains why whales are not fish, talks about some of Darwin’s theories and opens a window into the world on the bottom of the ocean.
The authors created a new scenography specifically designed for the space of Sladovna. The crayfish swing Rakenrol, button swings, spider climbing frame and the climbing frame from found whale glasses did not fit inside the West Bohemian Museum. The popular race track has been renewed – our littlest visitors simply love it: who wouldn’t want to ride a tricycle through the gallery?
The exhibit is designed both for children and adults.
