Our implementation and recreation
We used Mondrian’s designs as a starting point for our interactive experience space. To expand the immersive experience, we developed a suitable soundtrack for the Mondrian space. We developed Mondrian’s static design elements into interactive animations that could be influenced by visitors via a touch display.
Connecting Art with Technology
We also used the resulting room to present the work of the Barkhausen Institut. We embedded elements of information technology and IoT in the artistic design of the room. Accordingly, the geometric forms, lines and colors in their neat structure can also be understood as a closely interlaced overall structure: The complexity of the Internet of Things as artistic expression. Finally, the artwork was given a new function: it became a technology demonstrator
Using four projectors and the software framework VVVV, we created an audiovisual room installation that allowed visitors to discover the unique field of tension between art and technology in an accessible and individual way. This also made it possible to convey much more abstract topics such as data confidentiality, network technology and IT security.
