What does it take to make a good astronomical observation? The time of day, the time of year, and the weather all play their part, and all have to line up. And once you have taken a clear picture of the heavens, what can you then learn from it? How do you for instance spot an asteroid against a starry sky?
Brorfelde Observatory was formerly an active workplace for astronomers and world renowned for producing world-class scientific instruments. Today the observatory has been transformed into a discovery center that awakens visitors’ fascination with the sky through the lens of Denmark’s largest telescope. In collaboration with Brorfelde Observatory, YOKE has created a versatile exhibition with three unique experiences that emphasize the wonder of asteroids, illuminate the telescope as an instrument and explore the astronomer's work in the observatory. YOKE designed the lighting, scenography, signage and graphics, as well as the bespoke software and hardware solutions for the exhibition.
Location: Brorfelde, Denmark
