Kinetic Logo

Kinetic Logo

Commissioned by Art+Com I worked on the kinetic logo, a kinetic sculpture based on 48 mobile triangles forming the diagonal of the deutsche bank logo . The triangles can move vertical and skip over two axes. This way they can be used to create complex choreographies forming floating three dimensional structures. Next to this physical motion [...]

centerboard

centerboard

For the centerboard I was asked to develop a generative visual based on lines. Here one can navigate through facts of the history and presence of the bank using a sensitive multitouch surface. Displaced lines form an abstract animated landscape, touching the senstive surface causes a deformation of the lines. The contant blends smoothly out [...]

transformer

transformer

Transformer is a free project a large scale generative visual combining dynamic displacement and realtime particle simulation. Parameters are blended in a defined value space randomly and create unique transformations. A gpu particle system allows the realtime animation of nearly half a million triangles attached to a dynamic grid. The strength of the different forces [...]

Salt Worldwide

Salt Worldwide

Commissioned by art+com I developed the computation design and final application for a media installation the german salt museum in Lüneburg. „Salt Worldwide.“ vividly tells the story of the salt around the world by simulating a virtual world made out of salt. There are 34 touch sensitive salt crystals spreading over the map highlighting salt [...]

WORK, MEANING AND WORRY

WORK, MEANING AND WORRY

On behalf of ART+COM I have developed six interactive media stations and one generative projection as part of a statistics strip for the exhibition “Work. Meaning and Worry”. The media stations with projections are integrated into the strip, where visitors can change different parameters by turning knobs and thus retrieve various data. Credits Creative Director: [...]

level green exhibition
level green exhibition

In the level green exhibition part of the Volkswagen Autstadt , visitors can learn about the consequences of climate change, the importance of sustainability for the economy and society, mobility concepts for the future and Volkswagen’s specific approaches towards sustainability. Covering about 1000 square metres, the exhibition space is divided into six themed areas. I [...]

On behalf of art+com I developed four motifs for the mediatecture of the bmw museum. The motifs are based on photos and animated typography. images courtesy art+com

copaxone
copaxone

For the 23rd ECTRIMS, the world’s largest medical convention on the research and treatment of multiple sclerosis, ART+COM developed the presentation for the medication Copaxone. In an interplay that included interactive media table, live moderator and off-speaker, the complex operation of Copaxone was explained to the convention participants in graphic detail. On behalf of ART+COM [...]

project no 8
project no 8

All lights inside Project No. 8 are turned off after hours. Only a person passing by or stopping in front of the windows activates a hidden sensor. The sensor starts one of 7 different light pattern which all follow different rules but are completely generative and thereby different. ATEM light installation is not added on [...]

flightplans
flightplans

Flightplans in pdf format of the 3 big airline networks have been parsed into a database and visualized by mapping the flights on a virtual globe based on there time and position. The result shows the main traffic areas, change of the flight densities according to the current time and reveals interesting patterns in the [...]
