ABOUT US: Über uns Working as scenographers we love to explain complex and sometimes highly emotional things in a popular and original way Our method is similar to that of an translator. But unlike him we do not only use words, but also space, moving images, sound, music, and light. Our products are experiences in the public space: exhibitions, brandlands, theme-parks, visitor attractions. A relatively new branch of our activity is the developing of interactive exhibits for science communication. Amongst our customers are private companies, museums, cultural or municipal institutions, huge organizations and small societies. Since shortly we focus on the space between school, university and museum – a decisive field for (post)modern knowledge-based societies… Success to us is touching visitors' hearts and mind. Our aim is to provoke curiosity, to make people ask questions and come back to find out more. Pictures are our universal language – therefore we communicate as well locally as internationally. We like surprises: that's why none of our projects looks alike…
