For a special exhibition at the Jewish Museum in Berlin ART+COM created its first multi-touch installation in 2004. On the nine by two meter table floats a continuous stream of numbers. Individual digits appear randomly at the surface of this stream and, once touched by a visitor, reveal their meaning in text, pictures, animation and small interactive applications.
The table itself is made out of wood and is very robust. On the underside of the tabletop a grid of in-house developed capacitive sensors are installed detecting the position of the visitors' hands. The content is computationally designed and generated in real time, communicating to the audience an autonomous behavioural system.
