Livsreise (translated: "Life's Journey") is a sacred place dedicated to the many significant stories of Norwegian immigrants leaving Norway and coming to Stoughton Wisconsin between 1825 and 1924. The art exhibition space is 1500 square feet.
The integration of interactive digital art is critical to the success of the unique storytelling techniques deployed by Zebradog in this space. The space exudes authentic life in Norway from 1925 through the turn of the century. The goals were to create a seamless transition between 150 year old artifacts and new century media. The authenticity must be the same. The sole must relate to both old and new.
Architect, illustrator, graphic artist, content developer, researcher, user interface designer, media developer and millworker all coming together to deliver an integrated story of destiny, risk, love, sorrow, passion and survival. It took 18 months to research, write, design and execute the story of 100 years of emigration to America.
"This is the best interrelation between artifact, art and culture I have seen," Ellsworth Brown - Executive Director - Wisconsin Historical Society

[ manifesto ]
Art matters. Attention to the details of our environment leads to love of place, which brings us to take responsibility for the spaces where we live and work. And by extension, the people with whom we live and work. And by extension, to our local communities, our cities, our nations, and our world.
We champion the role of artists in our society. We need artists to provide us with inspiration, creativity, and imagination, and to help us envision a better world.
Architects and designers know that remarkable design can change everything. They connect the dots across disciplines, collaborating with artists to make the world a more beautiful place. They are the ultimate patrons of the arts.
In the process, design professionals promote imagination and creativity, and through their commissions, make original art integral to and accessible in people's lives.
Art in our public and private spaces helps us fight ordinary buildings, ordinary streets, ordinary cities. We celebrate the extraordinary.
The architecture of our buildings and the design of our interiors affect our happiness and well-being. Each of us deserves a daily dose of inspiration.
