MESO Digital Interiors was asked to design and plan an interactive table to inform about Nikons digital imaging technologies at the Photokina 08 in Cologne. The interactive table was part of the new exhibition booth designed in aspect of Nikons Motto for 2008 “Discover”.
The meso team: Jannis Kreft, Sebastian Oschatz, Max Wolf, Ingolf Heinsch
From 30th October until 9th November the festival for computer-based art CYNETart_08 takes place in Dresden, Germany.
Artists from 45 countries with about 280 works have applied to participate in the festivals competition.
One of the 16 selected artworks is the BIO CAN, an interactive web installment made with vvvv. It transfers the technique of spraying a slogan from the eighties into the present.
The internet is the outer wall of today.
With the wooden BIO CAN you can spray a message at the website of a climate killer. Your picture will be saved and automatically sended as an attachment via email to the chairman of the climate desroyer.
For more information please check the website.
Another interesting artwork at the festival is "double helix" by Ursula Damm.
It is worth to visit it!
Architecture firm UN Studio invited MESO Digital Interiors to provide a projected lighting design for their built contribution to this year' Venice Architecture Biennale.
The result is a 9-Beamer batch of pretty pixels loosely based on YouTube serendipiclips. Video coated surfaces! Ultra short throw ratios! Unnerved Dikis! Link
Outdoor Show in The Hague by MAXALOT Gallery, 26-27 September 2008
What if you had a special little helper who could assist your own creativity into creating the most intricate layout of various curious and beautifully detailed objects and things. Who would be the real creator? What if you had actually made this special little helper yourself to begin with? Artists working with programming do just that, they create a very powerful creator and let them do the hard work. Through computer software algorithms written in various scripting languages more and more artists now use these powerful tools to have information generate mind blowing imagery. This "processing" of information happens in a combination of order and disorder, and although most behaviours are very much so controlled by the artists, the outcome is always somewhat of a surprise.
For this event, this public outdoor exhibition, Maxalot will present a selection of todays finest generative artists and have their work light up part of the VROM building next to The Hague's Central Station using another powerful tool, Light.

this is our first aproach to the idea of a 3d navigator for your destop
( the real one, the wooden ). you have to move a pen over a projected
horizontal section of an architectual plan. if the pen will rest over
one of the rooms a 3d view of this room shows up. you can turn around
by moving the pen within the room.
the flavoring ingredients are flash, a webcam for the colortracker,
a beamer and of course vvvv!
disjecta is an installation by me, Patrick Raddatz comprising of 72 split flap modules. Fragments of own texts, snippets of recorded talks and the remnants of excursions in books and music are cut-up like on display for a while, aleatorically selected. Seconds pass by, the display time varying unpredictably until that very sentence starts to mutate. Single letters or words change, altering meanings, changing directions.
And again after some time has passed, keywords of those sentences appear, one writing over the other, until the next cycle of full sentences gets displayed.
disjecta is a textual process characterized by remembering and decay, echoes of a past in variable distance and the transformation and creation of opinions.
This installation came to life during my MESO Artist in Residence term and runs on a fine patch created by Sebastian Oschatz (already hacked by me :D ), who has realized the core technical development along with Wolfgang Schemmert of Cinetix, based on my reverse engineering of this stone age technology during my internship at MESO. It will be soon on display at the Festival Junger Talente 2008 and my first solo show at the 1822-Forum in Frankfurt am Main. Yay!
