The entire concept was based on an exposition of the golden sphere, which upraises Jesus Christ and is located in the middle of the triptych. The sphere can symbolise the absolute, which descended to the earth to appear in our everyday life.
In the first stage the project a teaser campaign was implemented. The keynote of the teaser campaign was a golden sphere created in 3D and rendered on a red background with National Museum in Gdańsk logo on a side. The golden sphere was displayed through many communacation channles: citylights, poster pillars and social media for about 2-3 weeks.
The second part of the campaign was supossed to explain the whole concept. In the explanatory part of the campaign, the golden sphere was transferred and incorporated into various, highly recognazible locations in Gdańsk as a set of visuals.
