The audiovisual narrative is made up of the exhibition presented in the Art Walk gallery and the accompanying soundtrack. When you arrive at the gallery, turn on the audio in your favourite headphones to immerse yourself in the story of the photon’s journey from the Sun to Earth.
The exhibition ‘499 seconds’ is designed as an audiovisual narrative linking outer space to Earth. In it, the character of the narrator combines the issues occupying the minds of scientists exploring outer space, with the phenomena of Earth and the concerns of its inhabitants. A digital booklet containing the full text of the book has been created for the hearing and deaf and anyone who cannot benefit from the audio narration. In the brochure you will also find additional information and anecdotes related to the content of the exhibition.
