The installation “Wandern im Wissen” (Wandering in Knowledge) represents current inquiries and transports the information of different scientific fields visually to the stairway between the four floors of the The State- and Universitylibrary Bremen.
The State- and Universitylibrary Bremen (SuUB) invited the University of the Arts Bremen to contribute to the 350th year anniversary with a design project. Since 350 years, The State- and Universitylibrary Bremen organises and structures information and makes it accessible for the visitors. Searching and retrieving information are the main requests of the library’s visitors. An almost endless flow of information inquiries are obtained and fulfilled on daily basis. In this respect, the students of the University of the Arts Bremen granted an aesthetic and poetic expression to this invisible procedure. In the center of the 15 meters high stairway of the library, a sculpture of folded paper demonstrates the connection between the traditional storage medium and the digital information world. The permanent flow of information inquiries at the SuUB runs through on a vertical axis between four floors of the building. The random results of the inquiries release corresponding visuals of text and pictures which cause curiosity for the various activites in the library. The media sculpture highlights the abundance of the mental processes, which take place simultaneously in the library. The retrieval inquiries result in new collages of visuals of text and pictures, which form an aesthetic translation of the search procedure. The searched words, then, fill the pool of data at the ground of the stairway. Altogether the media installation poses questions about the function of the information in the age of the increasing communicational isolation. In regard to the title, the visitor literally passes through the world of knowledge.

The interactive audio-visual installation ‘Lightrails’ was a project that Strukt created together with unheilbar architektur for the Project Space inside the Kunsthalle Wien.
‘Lightrails’ is a light sculpture with the intention to re-define and re-interpret the exhibition room. An easy but effective mapping technique was used to create seamless projections on both sides of the object. Light-beams were triggered by the visitors and ran through the room, following the surface created by the sculpture. Each “reflection” of the light-beam was accompanied by sound. The speed and brightness of the beam was directly influenced by the force the visitors used when triggering the beam stepping on pedals on the floor.
The Mercedes F800 Tomograph is literally an interactive screen exhibit. The screen itself is the interface and can be moved horizontally as well as vertically. The screen acts as a window into a different reality, turning the white model into a realistic shaded version and some xray visualisations.
a very late post to the gallery, 4 years too late. this was my first vvvv project and the first dome system based on vvvv.
ICH² (Me to the power of 2) is an interactive dance performance especially developed for fulldome planetariums. The performance combines expressive modern dance and 360° interactive motion graphics.
In this way ICH² is a very unique piece of the emerging genre called Digital Theatre, in which digital media technology enables alterable and imersive stage settings. Technical Setup using VVVV Fulldome Renderer.
A Cooperation of Muthesius Academy of Arts, Mediadome Kiel and Ballett Kiel, Germany.
Music is originally built for a 6-channels setup.
Video made with VVVV and Max/MSP connected via OSC protocol.
Premiered at Connect Festival, Malmö (Sweden), November 2009.
