Based on the documentary "Oceans" by Jacques Perrin, it is exhibiting at the National Museum of Natural Sciences in Madrid 'Oceans. The last wilderness', an exhibition that uses a fundamentally audiovisual exhibition format.
The National Museum of Natural Sciences in Madrid (MNCN-Basic) Is approaching exposure Oceans. The last wilderness the mysteries of the deep sea to the heart of the capital.
This project involves the visitor a tour of the wealth of the oceans based on material from the documentary OceansThe greatest testimony filmed on the seabed that has ever been done. The film, directed by the "Oscar-winning" Jacques Perrin (Nomads of the Wind, Les Choristes) Along with Jacques Cluzaud, it required a total of 7 years of work, 75 expeditions in which more than 500 people participated. There were obtained 480 hours of material with huge educational and scientific value, recording images of more than 200 marine species from five continents. Those images, totally unprecedented and of great beauty, now constitute the audiovisual exhibition stand.
In this experience, with great scientific value, the public can dive through interactive displays, 3D experiences or a curved surface that produces an immersive effect. For smaller also it features a playground where they can make sand sculptures or do puzzles.
The visitor enters the exhibition through a video circuit where eleven teams Optoma (1080 3000M) project images from Z11Pro Zenopllige 4K players on suspended screens.
Hotspot compose a dozen monitors LG 42 inch (LB5610) equipped with touch panels that enable information on various aspects of the marine environment.
On the other hand, through a system of passive glasses and three 55-inch screens LG (UH625V), a holographic 3D production allows visitors to dive into the depths. The projection reproduces some of the images that the cinematographer specializing in underwater shoots Roberto Rinaldi picked for the film Oceans.
But perhaps one of the areas most impresses the visitor is a large curved screen 12 × 6.65 meters (260 square meters). Thanks to nine projectors Sony VPL-FHZ55 with lenses 1.39 and 0.8, a Watch Max system Dataton and an audio system Beringer and Element, Oceans. The last wilderness It offers breathtaking scenes with immersive effect.
The exhibition is completed with numerous life-size replicas where we can find even a great white shark of 6.5 meters.
Without physical boundaries
Oceans, formed 4,000 million years ago, occupy 70% of Earth and are home to more than a million animal species, of which only 20% is known. Knowledge and awareness are the best messages to try to maintain diversity of species, and what better way to become aware of something that contemplating its beauty with superb images.
"We know better the surface of the moon than the seabed; it is not a joke. We are impoverishing ocean resources irresponsible and absurd, and we risk irreversible changes occur in this medium that fills three-quarters of the Earth, "says the curator of the exhibition Oscar Vega.
Vega maintains that the ocean is the last territory on Earth, which still has no physical borders, where animals can move like others to do over the continents, is "the last wilderness"
The exhibition has the support of the Center for Scientific Research and the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation is organized by World Exhibitions and can be visited at the headquarters of the National Museum of Natural Sciences until 25 November.
