The "Viral" exhibition at the Pavilion of Knowledge was reopened on September 24. Find out about the role of Estúdio FCCN in preparing new interactive modules.
"Viral" is an interactive exhibition that has toured several countries in recent years. Recently returned from France, "Viral" includes different modules that reflect on the theme of "Contagion". The current context, resulting from the new coronavirus pandemic, has led Ciência Viva to add a new interactive module on Covid-19, using the FCT's Studio unit FCCN .
The focus of this collaboration was audio capture, with the aim of recording various pieces of content to be included in the interactive exhibition. In this way, through the voiceovers made at Estúdio FCCN, it became possible to address topics such as the origin of the Covid-19 epidemic and the fake news associated with it, for example.
"Viral" is described as an exhibition for families, schools and adults. The interactive modules that make it up explore the phenomenon of contagion through the prism of various areas of knowledge ranging from Biology to Epidemiology, Social Sciences or Psychology.
Inaugurated in 2015, at the Pavilion of Knowledge, this exhibition was created by the Ciência Viva agency, in partnership with the museums Cité des sciences et de l'industrie, in Paris, and Heureka, in Helsinki.
