“La Rioja Tierra Abierta: Sin, Penance, Forgiveness”
What does a designer do when their client is God?
An unconventional exhibition in the middle of a cathedral.
The fourth edition of “La Rioja Tierra Abierta” placed 3.500 m2 of exhibition in Santo Domingo de la Calzada’s Cathedral and its Cloister.
The concept is huge interactive game where the visitor can sin and go to a fiery inferno below, then pass through a virtual baptism, repent, do penitence, and finally be saved and transported to the magnificent heavens. In the meantime the visitor is free to contemplate various religious works of art from the Vatican coffers.
The encounter between history and technology, spirituality and digital era had such attractions as the user’s active participation through expository elements or the use of new technologies.
Client: Indissoluble for the Fundación Caja Rioja, Gobierno De La Rioja, Spain.
