The interactive monument pays the homage to survivors and victims of holocaust through the testimony of Marketa Novakova. Woman who survived concentration camps Terezin and Ausswitz. The exhibit aims to propose an innovative scenographic approach using the most recent technologies to involve, engage, immerse physically and emotionally the audience in this tragic chapter of the 20th century.
We literally brought statue of Marketa Novakova to life by combining video mapping and interactive technology - to operate the impossible and to immerse audience. The breath of life awakens the statue when the a visitor is present. When the audience approach the installation, a real size statue of Marketa Novakova, Marketas' eyes open and blink (video projection/mapping) and audio record with Marketa's voice tells her story. However, if the viewer moves away, the statue falls silent. If there is no active listener, the stories of our history will silently pass out of our minds.
