Interactive object 'Madagaskar'

ZooParc Overloon

The great danger of Madagascar!

Sadly Madagascar is no longer that green jungle we saw in the animation movie. Many animal and plant species, which are only found in Madagascar, are threatened with extinction due to detestation and the pet trade, among other things.

How does it work?

The design and operation of the sign have been specially developed for this project. The deterioration of the island can be viewed step by step by sliding the lever under the board to the side.

Epilogue :)

For us, this project was another interesting assignment. We had multiple designs for the object and how we were going to use the interactivity. We found out that construction wise these designs were very difficult, read impossible, to create. So we had to figure out an easier way to show the regression of the island. It's the first time we've used this technique and we are quite happy with the results.
