Simply place an iPad on top of the pyramid-shaped screen, which uses three special types on film, to create a display where the screen image appears to be floating in the middle of the pyramid.
By reflecting onto the screen, the video contents using a multiscreen application, a 3D image appears when viewed with the naked eye from all angles, using the reflection angles of the filmed image.
The filmed images also changes interactively in response to the sound picked up from the iPad microphone.

World War II From Space is a 90 minute documentary visualising key events from World War II from the vantage point of space.
This was a huge task as there were 300 animations (most between 20/30 secs) and 79 VFX shots completed in 8 months.
This is a montage of some of these sequences.

The Dutch design studio LUST has created a new interactive installation for the exhibition ‘Type/Dynamics’ at the Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam. ‘Type/Dynamics’ interacts with and comments on the work of graphic designer Jurriaan Schrofer (1926–1990) in an effort to revitalize recent design history. The installation visualizes information that continuously surrounds us and is always accessible. By searching for real-time locations currently in the news, like "Ground Zero", "Reichstag”, or "Tiananmen square”, the installation can locate the panorama images from Google Streetview, abstract them into grids and fill the grids with new information. As a visitor to the space, you are literally 'transported’ to that location and surrounded by all the news associated with that specific location. Instead of a photographic representation, the place is represented purely typographically with a host of new items currently being talked about at that location. Nothing in the gallery space stands still; all information continuously moves.
