Ars Electronica Highlights 2

I’m sharing more highlights from this year’s Ars Electronica Festival. See part one for more highlights.

 

Animated restroom sign – The men’s bathroom had the best sign ever! I’ve never been so delighted by a bathroom sign. Playful and fun use of a projector and an animation.

 

Interface I by Ralf Baecker – A red horizontal line is adjusted up and down the vertical axis to make a fluid line graph irl. The horizontal line seems to be controlled by hundreds of little motors moving thin clear cable up and down. Gorgeously lit and placed in a large dark room.

 

Single Stroke Structures by Takahiro Hasegawa and Yasuaki Kakehi – make temporary structures (maybe even phone booths!?!) out of strategically crimped, inflated plastic tubing. How amazing would it be to keep a shed in your backpack?

Highlight by Jussi Ängeslavä, Michael Burk, Iohanna Nicenboim – direct light using a lampshade. 3D printing allows for the matching of shade with the room – direct light where you want it.

jPhotosynth printing – print on plants. Mask the leaf and expose the rest to light that causes alters the photosynth process.
