A time to make friends™ is the motto of the 2006 FIFA World Cup™. With our travelling Football Globe we are sending out an international emissary in anticipation of this event. We hope it will be welcomed everywhere and radiate its positive energy. I am very much looking forward to its next point of call in Milan.

The Football Globe Germany is designed to be a symbol, an urban meeting place and a multimedia installation. The sculptural project consists of a dynamically formed white base supporting an illuminated ball that merges the shapes of globe and football. Inside the
sphere is an installation consisting of 510 cold-cathode tubes that are controlled individually. The tubes are bent into circles of different sizes and arranged to form an extremely complex spatial constellation. This creates a large number of different lighting effects whose powerful pulses
symbolise the extremely positive energy arising from the keen global anticipation for the Football World Cup.
Two media terminals on the Football Globe Germany offer visitors information about the Artistic and Cultural Programme to the 2006 FIFA World Cup™, about the 2006 FIFA World Cup™ and its host Germany. The main attraction, though, for participants and spectators alike is the interactive "Corner Flag Dance". Visitors are able to film their own personal corner flag dance and post it on the Internet or send it from there to family and friends.
All light programming and media terminals was done using vvvv.
