Ocean Worlds

Forces of nature and life in the oceans


The special exhibition “Ocean Worlds” in the German Marine Museum

The site of the exhibition was worth a visit itself: Archimedes portrayed the fascination of the ocean in Stralsund’s historic harbour. “Ocean Worlds”, exhibited in the German Marine Museum between May 2002 and October 2006, combined a sensual experience with entertaining and interactive information – according to the motto, “You only protect what you understand”.

Designed as special exhibition for the German Marine Museum, “Habitat, Cultural History, Phenomena of the Sea” presented itself through a dramatic mix of extremely diverse exhibits. Photographs and classical exhibits from the collection of the Marine Museum were combined with new exhibits and media developed by Archimedes.

A specially designed air-inflated structure was built for “Ocean Worlds” – a completely new concept in this form. The ocean blue ¾ sphere sent a signal to the public which was visible from afar and created a spectacular visual focus. The theme proceeded inside: shimmering blue light flooded the exhibition space and created a mysterious atmosphere.
