Projections in the Forest

20. Januar 2015 - 12:52 Uhr

Simply beautiful, projection mapping on trees and animals! One highlight are the projected leafs at 1:37!!

The projection mapping „bioluminescent forest“ is made by artists Friedrich van Schoor and Tarek Mawad. The artists spent six weeks in the forest fascinated by the silence and natural occurrences in nature, especially the phenomenon „bioluminescence“. They personified the forest to accentuate the natural beauty by creating luring luminescent plants and glowing magical mushrooms that speaks volumes to any visitor that enters the minds of the artists through viewing „bioluminescent forest“.

Architecture that senses and responds

4. Dezember 2014 - 16:00 Uhr

With this talk, in 2011 I decided that I wanted to be an Interaction Designer. I was fascinated about the possibilities of this discipline and about what we can do with the creativity combined with technology. This is one of my favourite TED talks.

Well guided – innovative service concept

Boarding information at 64 x 30.000 pixels

Rush hour at the train station: Where will the train stop? Where can I find an empty seat? Where can I board with my bike?
Goal of this implemented idea was to make the entry situation for the passengers easier. Therefor a 180 meter LED-Display has been located right above the platform. It provides information about the incoming train. The Screeninformation moves parallel to the train and shows exactly were an empty seat can be found, where class 1 or 2 are located, where one can entry the train easily by wheelchair.
It improves the transfer process: from communicating platforms to mobile travel assistants to new communication concepts preparing passengers for incoming trains.
So far this Project (from ProRail – together with NS Dutch Railways) is being installed only at the Amsterdam Station „Hertogenbosch“.
However, everybody who uses the train frequently would love this simple solution.

Motion Bank Projekt – Tanzende Vektoren

7. November 2013 - 16:58 Uhr


Im Rahmen des sog. „Motion-Bank-Projekts“ von William Forsythe analysierte ein Team z. B. die Choreographie „No Time to Fly“ (von Deborah Hays).
Ziel war es , dem Stück zugrunde liegende Muster zu erkennen und zu visualisieren. Im Frankfurt LAB filmte das Team vierzig Aufführungen von drei Tänzern mit acht synchronisierten HD-Kameras frontal, von den Seiten und aus der Vogelperspektive. Über Triangulierung verortete die hierfür vom Fraunhofer Institut Darmstadt entwickelte Software (Instant Vision) die Tänzer im dreidimensionalen Raum. Später wurden die Daten als Vektorgrafiken ausgewertet.
Das gesamte, interdisziplinäre Projekt ist auf 4 Jahre angelegt. Spannend: es ist ein international angelegtes Projekt mit:
The Ohio State University, Fraunhofer-Institut, Hochschule Darmstadt, Hochschule für Gestaltung Offenbach, Hochschule für Musik und Darstellende Kunst Frankfurt am Main, Palucca Hochschule für Tanz Dresden, Humboldt Universität Berlin, Max-Planck Institut für Hirnforschung.

Augmented interaction

24. Oktober 2013 - 21:43 Uhr

Everyone is waiting for the first suitable holographic interface to be the really next big thing in interaction design. On the way to there it´s worth to have a look on Metaios concept of how they try to manipulte objects in augmented reality scenarios.

Nerdalarm! Intersection of Robotics, Projection-Mapping and Software

26. September 2013 - 15:33 Uhr

The San Francisco-based design and engineering studio Bot and Dolly produced this amazing clip „Box“! It demonstrates a mixture of robotically controlled monitors, projection-mapping and choreographed human interaction.


Box explores the synthesis of real and digital space through projection-mapping onto moving surfaces. The short film documents a live performance – captured entirely in camera(!)

Virtual Museum Visit

3. Juli 2013 - 14:41 Uhr

Mazda’s Museum has been digitalized by Google Street View and offers a virtual tour:



Street view combined with e.g. omni (see link below) reminds me of Star Trek’s holodeck.
