Hammershus is one of Denmark's most significant historical monuments and Scandinavia's largest medieval fortification. At the Hammershus Visitor Center, built into the landscape across from the old castle ruin, visitors can experience the castle's history from the 1560s until today in the exhibition "The Hated Castle."
The aesthetic approach that infuses the entire exhibition is created using a point cloud universe. This airy and transparent yet dramatic universe gives the feeling of history disappearing like particles or sand flowing in the air.
On the concrete wall of the building, an 11.5 m wide video projection, accompanied by a dramatic soundscape, takes the visitor back to the 1560s. The journey is visualised using a combination of large-scale 3D scans from drone fly-overs and a re-constructed model of how historians believe the castle appeared during that specific time.
In the centre of the room, a large wooden model of the castle ruin is surrounded by eight touch screens offering eight different deep dives into the castle's story. This way, visitors can dive into the details of the castle and its significance to Bornholm.
Yoke has created the overall aesthetic approach, illustrations, digital interactive app experience and audiovisual projection installation.
The exhibition is developed in collaboration with Museum Sydøstdanmark.
