Bildbeschreibung

In July 2014, one of my projects, the result of an interdiscipli-nary postgraduate course at HfG Offenbach (supervision: Prof. Alex Oppermann, Electronic Media and Prof. Dr. Markus Holzbach, Product Design), was for the first time presented to a wider public as part of an experiment at the „Walk and Talk“-festival on the Azores in form of an interactive installation.

 

Here I was able to break through (collapse) Euclidean geo-metry using advanced software programs and to create my own fractal environment. This I achieved by constructing a purely artificial object existing from a merely fractal logic that takes into account parameters bound to a specific location.

 

Through a change of scale into the gallery space and the em-ployment of Processing (object-oriented programming lan-guage), Arduino, Ableton Live (music software) and Max/MSP (visual programming language) the dialogue was spatially con-centrated and spectators were able to be part of and interact with the installation via the translation of movement into sound and light. 


In addition I realized a great number of installations among others in Paris, Warsaw, Prague, Milano and Lisbon that all confronted urban spaces and allowed me to experiment scenographically with available building structures.


It was interesting to see what happens when suddenly the intangible becomes tangible and what effect this has on our environment:


To what extent is the original formal character of a space affected and what significance does it have for the location?


What importance can be ascribed to this and what insight could we and our environment draw from it?
