Museum/Exhibit/Design Inspiration: MICROBODYSSEY

Tatwood Puppets, a duo that combines puppetry, magic, and theatre, has created what looks to be a super-cool show about microbes called MICROBODYSSEY.

Founders Matt Wood and Kerrin Tatman joined forces with artist and puppet maker Judith Hope to create a cross between a cabaret show and science fiction movie to give people a better sense of the microbial life all around us.

Judging from the pictures shown here (and the video at the bottom this post) there is great power in combining "old school" storytelling techniques like puppetry and magic with "new school" immersive video and science fiction tropes.

How can we find the space for mashups of old school and new school techniques in our own creative work?
