Swedish Museum of Natural History exhibit offers hairy flies, woolly bees and other of nature's small insects close up in 3D and without glasses.
WizzCom 3D Productions has worked with macro Photographer John Hallmen to help him take photos suitable for conversion to an AS3D film (glasses free 3D). The film is being shown on an Alioscopy 42” display as part of the exhibition which runs up to January 7th 2013.
The idea is that visitors will be able to see insects as how insects see each other. According to the 3D production company, insects no larger than a few millimeters appear like gigantic monsters from a horror movie but the purpose of this exhibition is not to frighten, but rather enlighten the viewers, and let people see and appreciate the tiny details of the small insects we normally refer to as “bugs”
“We are very happy to have done this film for the museum. John´s images are fantastic and in 3D the impact is amazing. This is really a school book example of how 3D adds that extra dimension to the experience and really lifts it” says Staffan Hedlund, CEO at WizzCom 3D Productions.
“To give new perspectives on nature and at the same time increase our visitor’s knowledge is completely in line with our mission”, says Claes Enger, Head of Exhibition at The Swedish Museum of Natural History, and continues: The exhibition Mini Monsters is perfect for the whole family. Regardless of prior knowledge you can’t avoid being somewhat charmed by these small creatures.
