We came to the cinema, the screen is mounted horizontally under the roof. The shown movie changes scenes rapidly. In addition on some scenes start a fountain, different colors, below the screen. The visitors are sitting in a circle around the screen and have to look at top. So half the people can watch the movie correctly, the other see the pictures in the wrong direction. This changes often.
There are other parts of the exhibition. Interesting for me: The collected weapons (war and criminal) shows a way to peace. A lot of monitors, but sparingly written description / explanations.
All in all this pavilion came away with mixed impressions and a taste of "Don't stay too long here!". More than ten years ago I visit Canada, so I am disappointed not to see the virtue of the canadian people, the highlights of nature and the (formerly) very good infrastructue at this exhibition.
The shown pictures based on a question from Canada (guestbook/email; many thanks to you, David!). The newspaper in Canada, like Germany, reports mostly bad news or nothing at all regarding the EXPO 2000.
|Main entrance and the queue in front of the pavilion.||After a short waiting period we see the exhibition.|
|Monitors, as long as you can see. The pictures sometimes are hard to understand.||A lot of visitors, so it becomes difficult to find the exhibits.|
|This huge statue possibly belongs to the history of Canada, but there is no information available.||The floor, made by glass, shows shining flowers and the monitos show running water. Don't stop, the cinema is waiting!|
|Cinema, the screen is mounted horizontally under the roof. Sometimes there is a illuminated fountain.||Due to the circular ordered chairs the rapid changing pictures also changing the direction on screen will be very strenuous!|
|With this touch screen you will display many pages. The lower one can be tilt.||Clearly arranged exhibition but only few visible information.|
|Looks like a snowmobile, there are no explanation present.||Map, showing Canada north territories.|
|A sledge: rendeer or dog, old or new, restored? Only questions...||This construction, consist of war and criminal weapon, shows a way to peace on earth.|
|May be thousands and thousands of arms.||Show a good promise for the EXPO theme "Human, Nature, Technology".|
|A well documented example of the care of the environment. This kind of exhibit should be more presented.||Way to exit.|
|The shop.||Pavilion of Canada viewed from the Asia-hall.|
