Nobel Chamber

2015 April

The Nobel Chamber is a permanent exhibit at the Nobel Peace Center in Oslo, Norway. The exhibit is composed of a large format handbound book sits on a lecturn in the center of an otherwise empty room; as the participant opens the book, images and text are printed onto each page from an overhead video projector. As participants turn the pages in the book, the images and text animate to life and bring about unexpected changes to the room, immersing the users in the story. The book tells the story of the life of Alfred Nobel; from his early years with his family, to his discovery of dynamite, and finally ending with his death and the formation of the Nobel Prizes.
