EchinaPoint Visitor Centre
A. Vogel Bioforce

At the EchinaPoint Visitor Centre in the Bioforce compound, visitors can learn about the life and work of the pioneer of naturopathy, Alfred Vogel, and gain insights into various facets of natural medicine.

The exhibition in the visitor centre can be controlled via a smart device from the entire compound – blinds are closed, the light is dimmed and the film begins.
In the lobby there are four portrait screens playing a synchronised film with sound, which briefly gives an account of the healing power and history of the ancient medicinal plant Echinacea.
On the gallery, the senses are stimulated with a "scent machine": a five meter wide screen is pushed in front of the windows in a box manufactured by Kornell Vogt. A video showing the production of various natural remedies can be seen on it. Multi-channel sound and scent complete the experience.With the "Fresh Fader", visitors can select various plants using illuminated buttons. A fader controls a circular back projection of the plant cuts, which impressively demonstrates how plants change when they are dried. An animated sound effect accompanies the virtual drying process.

Tweaklab was responsible for the media planning, programming, control and installation of the media installations for the new permanent exhibition.
