Interactive Installations at the International Media Congress
The four installations at this year’s Digital Think Tank are the work of international media artists who create new forms of collective and individual media experiences using experimental links between technology and content.
The “Seer of Warm Winds” by Julian Oliver is no normal TV and instead uses data and images from local WLAN to transform mobile telephones and computers into broadcasting stations. You might call Servando Barreiro‘s “Störung” a Frankenstein computer, as it has no hard drive yet can still capture human interaction and transform it into audiovisual moments. The installation “Phenotypes/Limited Forms” by Peter Hanappe and Armin Linke uses social tagging to showcase the public use of an online photo archive. And “In the Veils of Negative Existence” fromBengtJöran Eitel turns the game concept of Super Mario on its head. When is a game still a game?
