The new permanent exhibition at the Museum Schlangenhaus shows life and people of the region Werdenberg – from the first traces of settlement up to the rediscovery of the small town in the mid-20th century. The fascinating exhibition focuses on everyday life throughout the entire history of the place. In an outstanding way Werdenberg's history comes alive by way of audio-visual imaging on a plaster model of the town: Various pictures and textures are projected onto the model, and a storyteller helps the visitors become immersed in the development of Werdenberg. The castle walls and houses are illuminated in various ways and thus the changing of the size of the town throughout the course of history is demonstrated. Images and sound further illustrate the tales.
Tweaklab was commissioned with editing the pictures for the video projections and precisely aligning them with the model. The sound track, including the scenic noises, was produced and mixed in our digital laboratory. Furthermore, Tweaklab programmed and installed various audio stations with headphones and selection buttons, LCD-screens and two settings for video presentations in the exhibition.
