Visible worldwide via hologram
– Through the ideas and work of the peace prize winners, we want to inspire small and large changes for a more peaceful world, says Grønneberg.
VISIBLE PEACE PRIZE WINNERS
-We create the Peace Prize Exhibition every year. The photo exhibition shows the work of the peace prize winners and visitors can learn about the important issues they stand for in an engaging way. This year, visitors can also meet the holograms of Muratov and Ressa here at the centre.
In addition, we have chosen to give everyone the opportunity to be visited by the Peace Prize winners at home in their own living room, as a hologram, he smiles and says that the Voice Of Norway app is free to download.
Maria Ressa met her own hologram
-Wow, that was cool!, said Ressa before she took several pictures together with her own hologram.

Hologram increases geographical relevance
Kjersti Fløgstad, director of the Nobel Peace Center says the following: “This year’s Nobel Peace Prize was awarded to two journalists for their courageous fight for freedom of expression in the Philippines and in Russia. If holograms can help their stories reach even further, we think it’s worth exploring”.
Since 1901, the Nobel Peace Prize has been awarded 102 times, to 137 prize winners. The globalization of the Nobel Peace Prize has accelerated since the 1980s, and now Metaverse can contribute to increasing its geographical relevance even further.
Nobel Peace Prize
- is made visible in hologram
– The world’s most prestigious prize, the Nobel Peace Prize, is no stranger to digital ventures. The archives of the Norwegian Nobel Institute are currently being digitized, and this year’s Peace Prize exhibition will be both a physical and a digital experience, says Grønneberg.
– This gives us many opportunities today, and the start of work for which we do not yet know the potential. For example, when the museum is closed, passers-by can still “meet” and take pictures with the peace prize winners outside the building, concludes Fløgstad.

Filming the peace prize winners Ressa and Muratov
-as a hologram
When the two peace prize winners arrived in Oslo to receive their medals, they were also asked to take part in a photo shoot in 3D for Metaverse. Maria Ressa and Dmitrij Muratov are now digitized as three-dimensional holograms – ready for the virtual, augmented and metaverse future. During the opening of the Peace Prize Exhibition at the Nobel Peace Center, Ressa and Muratov were introduced to their holograms for the first time.

Holocap makes holograms
Holocap Peder Børresen
It is the Norwegian company Holocap that is responsible for recording and arranging holograms of people and objects in the Voice Of Norway app.
Holocap has developed a technology to digitize and reconstruct real people as three-dimensional holograms (in virtual, augmented and Metaverse realities). The technology is referred to as volumetric video and is predicted to be an important part of bringing human presence into Metaverse platforms in the future.
