MEDIA ARCHITECTURE BIENNALE 2014

Pavillion Building + VVVV Workshop

Copenhagen & Aarhus Universities

MAB2014
http://mab14.mediaarchitecture.org/

The workshop proposes a new way to look at the interweaving of the natural world and urban life through the use of new media and architecture. Rather than trying to fully control/manage the relationship between the natural and built environment with computation (and its metaphors) this proposal sets out to augment the natural world. Thus creating artificial environments that evokes the organic. An architecture that artificially amplifies the experiences of nature that is diminishing in the urban context.

This is to be done by reproducing the affect of nature in a new abstract manner and projecting this onto a public pavilion. How can the regulation of light mimic weather? Fog? Create a landscape type experience?

Here the affect produced and its experiential qualities is the goal of the project. Resulting in a new type of public pavilion/infrastructure for cities.

Execution

The workshop sets out to physically produce a small prefabricated pavilion. Participants and workshop organizers will together piece the blocks in any shape as they see fit. The blocks will have interlocking capabilities pre-fabricated and brought to the workshop.

Following this an introduction to graphic visualization, open source and creative code environments will occur. Then the VVVV tutorials, layout methods and designing in real-time 3d diagrams. Finally the principals of projection mapping specifically related to VVVV and prototyping the various affects achieved onto the pavilion.

The end product is a pavilion displaying various co-created visualizations and their resulting affects by the participants for the public to enjoy. A pavilion that fuses analog and digital methods of production- thus creating opportunities for an architectural language for the digital experience. The final result will become part of the main exhibition at the Media and Architecture Biennale.

Digital Slaves created Fragment in Space with Olivier Ratsi (Antivj) a art piece composed of real time mapping, LED frames and electronics.
Fragment in Space is a light and sound sculpture whose elements are suspended by transparent strings and via hooks attached to the ceiling grid.
These elements are fragmented in a space according to a dynamical layout which increases the suspended state and offers the spectators depending on their positions a variety of points of view.
Modular, the system is adaptable to its exhibition space.
In this configuration, the facility was located in the center of the room occupied 13 m2 and a height of 3m.
The installation consists of 14 elements in red half translucent Plexiglas and six units composed of an aluminium structure embedded LEDs.
These elements can be independently illuminated in three variants; fully, partially or not at all according to a language, based on the lighting or extinguishing the final 44 parts.
This luminous scenography synchronized with a sound design brings the temporal dimension of the work.

Digital Slaves created with Visual System a LED sculpture in L'Atomium in Brussels in march 2012.
We usually imagine the home of the future as a cold cube full of neon fluorescence aggressively plunged into permanent night. Surely inspired by classic sci-fi movie Blade Runner or as Johnny Mnemonic, this conventional expectation of a bleak future but paradoxically hyper-lit is frigid as irrelevant to the extent that a normal man can not bear more 5 minutes the light emitted by these tubes without losing any enthusiasm. The Atomium has yet made a bet that kind of hostile environment in your retinas, and asked Visual System to completely rethink the visual environment of the escalator with Transit.
Transit is a bright, sprawling form. This device and its LED is an architecture in architecture. It offers the possibility to forget the strange physical structures of the escalator, while stressing its existence. Transit therefore not merely to dress the escalator, she redefines it offers disembodied and dreamlike dimension.
