Quantum physics is a fundamental theory in physics that studies the nature and behaviour of matter and energy on the atomic and subatomic level.
This project aims to engage people in an illustrated online tour of the ICFO building to discover fascinating aspects of the quantum world and learn about quantum concepts through stories told by ICFO researchers.
Each illustration represents a space of the ICFO building and also highlights certain aspects of the work they do. The innovative use of illustration in a virtual tour makes this project one of a kind. Illustration allows us to transmit complex concepts in a clear, attractive and engaging manner.
Videos are an essential part of this project. In science communication, videos have proved to be one of the most successful media. We have used different techniques such as motion graphics and illustration to support the explanation of complex scientific concepts while still keeping the researchers as the main characters.
In addition, we have used 2D animation to explain quantum concepts and experiments that cannot be seen by the naked eye.
The 360º photo of a real ICFO laboratory allows the visitor to see how quantum physics research looks like. The photo includes explanatory text to make sure visitors can understand what they are seeing and enjoy the visit.
