1. Strukt developed the "Black Box" a sculptural installation for the AX wine(e)motion exhibition, which offers an immersive multimedia experience for the visitors. The sculpture, which is reminiscent of the shape of wine boxes and reaches a height of 3 meters, is illuminated with video while accompanied by electronic sounds.

  2. The Ax winery offers visitors a tour to experience wine in form of an exhibition in Kéthely, Hungary. Strukt was commissioned to develop interactive installations for this exhibition. For the foyer two installations have been developed which serve as information terminals with a high entertainment value. The so-called " packaging station" leads wine cartons hanging on an assembly line behind a display on which animated robot arms fill the boxes with wine bottles and label them. The "packet inspection" station performs in a similar manner when cartons are passing behind a screen, product information for the various wines are displayed. The focus of the installations lay on the wine box and the way it is taking in the course of the production.
    Strukt also developed the "black box" a sculptural installation, which offers an immersive multimedia experience for the visitors. The sculpture, which is reminiscent of the shape of wine boxes and reaches a height of 3 meters, illuminated with video while accompanied by electronic sounds.

  3. Real-time interaction with industrial robots

    On September 26th the Vienna Tourist Board will be hosting an event where Alex Kiessling is creating artworks not only in Vienna, but simultaneously in Berlin, at Breitscheidplatz, and London, at Trafalgar Square.
    Alex is using two industrial robots (ABB IRB 4600) who are fed by real-time tracking data from Vienna via satellite connection to the remote cities. The result will be three artworks that are later brought together to built a triptych.

    By reading data from an infra-red touch frame and a Microsoft Kinect we analyze the movements of the artist and then the data is translated to feed the coordinates to the robots’ servers — difficult process since the robots’ software was not designed to interpret real-time data. The robots then recreate the movements of the artist and draw their interpretation of Alex’s drawing in real time. The data will be transmitted from Vienna to Berlin and London using a dedicated satellite connection.

  4. We realized a different kind of project for the exclusive vegetarian restaurant Tian located in the center of Vienna. In the entrance area a custom made light- and videoinstallation decorates the room, which can be controlled conveniently with a web application.

    In the chandalier made out of wood and dried flowers by renowed florists Schlichtbarock out of Feldbach, Carinthia, we installed moving-lights. Additionally we created a video mapping and projection installation to complete the look that's welcoming entering customers.

    To realize this project our little workshop at the office came in handy. We had to try out quite a lot of hardware solutions to find the smallest, most efficient parts that created the biggest effect. The most important thing was to adapt the existing chandalier in a very subtle way. The biggest challanges were to handle the heat development, the additional weight and the wiring.

    Together with Tian's house technicians we managed to have all the technical equipment be hidden, so that visitors cannot realize where the light and projection is coming from.

  5. A festive gala event on November 8th was the setting for the award ceremony hosted by the austrian technology blog futurezone. We have been commissioned to create an futuristic presentation system to showcase products and innovations. The room in the MAK, a museum for applied arts in Vienna was the perfect setting to be transformed into a cyberspace. Three big white walls that encompass the room were the perfect projection surface to immerse the guests into a virtual world.

    Inspired by the design of the award sculpture, we used the circuit-board aesthetics as our main design element. We created a world populated with energy conducting strip, electronic circuits and flashes of energy that were zooming along the conductive lines. All nominees and winners were embedded into this electronic landscape and during the evening we travelled vertically through this landscape creating the impression of traveling in elevator. The whole room was moving through 56 floors and each movement was enhanced acoustically to create an immersive experience.

    To achieve this we used six video projectors, two for each wall. Regardless of the difference between the aspect rations of the projections and the walls we used precise positioning of the projectors and a little mapping to create a seamless image throughout the room. Our vvvv real-time system allowed us to fine-tune the viewing angles so that all lines bent correctly around the corners of the room. All projections were controlled by two computers running vvvv.
