"The Enlargement of the Pupils on Reaching the High Mountains" is the title of the film collage which is a cineastic path where a group of up to 20 people spend an hour together wandering through ten rooms spread over two floors, sharing a fate as surely as if they were roped together. This film project at the Swiss Alpine Museum is a world premiere, combining the first ever walk-round mountain film. The film contains of various sequences of important Swiss mountain films which have been dramaturgically orchestrated be the screenwriter Antoine Jaccoud. Every 25 minutes the doors open for the next group of visitors.
Tweaklab was commissioned with the overall media planning of the indivitual film episodes and the installation in the designated spaces. This included also the synchronising of the various audio and video files for each space and the lighting control. In a waiting area the visitors can get in the mood for the upcoming adventure by watching old Swiss mountain films and receive information about the hike in an entertaing way.
