Norway is the Sea
- Norwegian Maritime Museum

“Norway is the Sea” is one of three new exhibitions that mark the Norwegian Maritime Museum’s centennial in 2014. Interactive experiences engage visitors to discussion and debate, and spread knowledge about Norwegian shipping and maritime activities. 

As the driving force behind the extraction of oil and other offshore ventures, the maritime industry is the foundation of modern Norway’s increasing wealth. The shipping industry brings goods from around the world to Norwegian consumers. This 500 square meters exhibition addresses technological changes and their impact on shipping and maritime industries in recent times, inviting debate about the future. As with the rest of society, the industry has gone global, and large movements in the world economy have brought prospects of growth as well as crises. Today, Norway’s advantages are still linked to natural resources, but first and foremost to experience and knowledge. What does this knowledge consist of, and how can we use it?

A Hidden Indstry

The overall atmosphere is dark - the visitors first impression is a sense of "uncharted" waters they have to navigate through. This is emphazied through the lighting concept and interactions the visitors have with the exhibition.
