Make your own trap
In the exhibition you can test your talent as a trapper. In collaboration with the computational designers from Void Studios we have developed an installation that allows you to trap virtual animals. To make an efficient trap you have to first observe and understand the behavior of the animals. But beware! The animals learn from their failures and will get more and more difficult to catch.
Gundersen’s mouse trap collection
Professor Gunnar H. Gundersen from Oslo and Akershus University College has a private collection of over 300 mousetraps. This collection demonstrates the various technologies that can be applied to catch mice. But some basic principles are applied around the world.
