EDUCATIONAL AUDIO/VISUAL INSTALLATION
Imagine yourself standing inside an extraordinary prehistoric shrine more ancient than Stonehenge or the pyramids of Egypt… a time capsule from prehistory, where sound plays tricks and primordial ghosts were artists & architects.
It’s almost like being on a different planet!
The non-profit OTS Foundation for Neolithic Studies has made the fantasy possible in the USA with a multi-sensory replication of just such an experience. Showcasing a 6,000 year old UNESCO World Heritage Site: the Hal-Saflieni Hypogeum of Malta, the exhibit uses giant scale images and original sound recorded during scientific research to punctuate the story of Archaeoacoustics: The Archaeology of Sound.
For those who are interested in human history, full color informational panels present a fascinating and compelling premise. For those who prefer to bypass the hard stuff, it’s just plain fun.
Featuring original recordings of archaeoacoustic research
