Roto designed and produced the theming and interpretive experiences for the Elephant Encounter exhibit at this Salt Lake City area zoo. In addition to a custom environmental graphics and signage package, Roto created custom interactive elements to help engage visitors in rhino and elephant conservation education.
centerpiece of this exhibit
experience is an outdoor art
installation called Elephachoo -- a life-size elephant
sculpture with a full repertoire of explosive,
wet sneeze effects. The
sculpture was styled after Indian soapstone carvings, and scaled to that of a
real bull elephant for close-up guest encounters.
In addition to extensive custom signage and architectural theming, this exhibit features numerous authentic and replica collections objects, uniquely displayed for guest interaction.
