The “Eye of Wodan” is a multimedia installation at Ribe Museum, Denmark, which tells the story of the life of the Danish Vikings in the period 720–980 AD. A central part of the installation is an interactive screen, which enables visitors to explore drawings of Viking age scenes on a canvas larger in size than the screen.
