The exhibition Knochenarbeit. Wenn Skelette erzählen at the Museum of Natural History Basel turned out a success with the public and won the PRIX EXPO 2012 award. The human skeleton is like a journey down memory lane. Why are we fascinated so much by it? What do the bones tell us about the bygone and forgotten or undreamt-of? These questions are playfully being pondered over on a large table at the centre of the exhibition. The visitors piece together various bone fragments on built-in touch screens and then listen to the corresponding facts and tales over the loudspeakers. A bone-shaped LED-band floating above the table displays questions about the bone fragments. In order to view the bones in greater detail you can use an iPad application to zoom into the bones. On listening stations with hanging earphones you can hear the skeletons tell medical stories, all written and recorded at Tweaklab. Tweaklab also implemented the integrated audio stations on the benches. Thus Tweaklab applied their long experience and expert know-how providing consulting services, planning, programming and installing of the media stations.
