Challenge
We were asked to devise a concept for a new entertainment museum. One that could attract young audiences and mothers with children. Was interesting and fit in with the overall concept of the rest of the client's museums.
Solution
We decided that our entertainment museum could be something in between a beautiful photo set and a world of imagination that gives vibrant emotions. To create a more emotional experience that would engage with adults and children alike in the same moment.
Ideation
test and development
Validation;)
In this museum there would be NO text, NO history and NO barriers between the viewers and the works. Just the emotional connection that sweets can create.
We created a portal of the senses in which adult memories are visualised and children's dreams are materialised. Adults find themselves plunged back into sweet fantasies of childhood while children are finally free to play in the candy colored world of their imagination which now can be physically touched.
