In August 2013 the Pre-Work Talk was dedicated to “Food”.
In their talk about the future of food Susanna Hertrich, visiting professor at the Anhalt University of Applied Sciences in Dessau and her students Linda Kühne and Carolina Woortman Lima asked the question how our eating habits will change due to societal circumstances and technologies of tomorrow.
TANGIBLE BAR by NMY
Controlling digital worlds with physical objects. The TANGIBLE BAR has been developed by NMY as an exhibit for use as an interactive point of sale at trade fairs and in showrooms by our clients. The interactive table is distinguished by its timeless design and use of highly innovative technologies.
Up to 4 people can simultaneously control and interact with the digital information of the application on the surface of the table using the tangibles as described above. This is done by turning, sliding or combining a number of different tangibles and interacting with the extended multitouch on-screen controls.
( Light and Sound Installation by Collectif Coin et Nohista / 30mn )
Cyclique is a light and sound installation composed of a matrix of 256 balloons inflated with helium and equipped with LED lights. The floating 700 square-meter structure changes its shape as the wind flows through the balloons, immersing viewers in an artificial synaesthetic landscape where the soundtrack becomes the orchestra conductor.
Director - set design - concept : Maxime Houot

2014 — Electroluminescent thread, electronic, piano Disklavier Yamaha DC6XE3PRO.
Portée/ is the interactive unfold of a musical score in space and a collective multi-sensory experience.
16 independant electroluminescent wires are deployed in a monumental asymmetric weave of light.
Visitors are invited to explore the spacial & interactive qualities of music, through a poetic setting.
When they touch and trigger vibrations of the luminous threads, the notes associated to each thread are played on an electro-mecanic grand piano. The melodies are triggered by the visitor but their intrinsic configuration remains out of his control.
Referencing the work of Iannis Xenakis, greek composer architect and engineer (1922-2001) the monumental
lines evoke the continous dialogue created between mathematics, architecture and music.
The proportions of the piece gives way to the gathering of multiple point of views that generate different geometrical outcomes : ascending, vertical, singular and chaotic. Each of them offer different ranges of interaction, conditioning simultaneously the intimate experience and global state of the space.
The melodies created by french musician Chapelier Fou (Louis Warinsky) evolve over time. They blur the frontier between manual and procedural music-score creation and force the visitor to question the origin of the music he’s hearing and his control over it.
