          THE DANISH PAVILION (2010) The video shows examples of studies of light designs for the Danish Pavilion at EXPO 2010 in Shanghai - see www.vimeo.com/26369392 for more information. The designs were mainly developed and examined by using three different design tools: A digital 3D model, 3D projection on a physical scale model and a full scale prototype of a slice of the facade. PRINCIPLES The reactive light designs are based on input from light and temperature sensors and are using white and red as their main colors.

            THE DANISH PAVILION (2010) The theme of the Expo 2010 was Better Cities Better Life and in this context BIG architects designed an expressive pavilion that showed the main qualities of Copenhagen by having real city bikes, a harbor pool and the Little Mermaid integrated in the exhibition. FACADE The Danish Pavilion was designed as a looping spiral, creating an elongated and varied exhibition that could be experienced as a pedestrian or on a Copenhagen city bike. The expressive form has over 300 meters of facade with more than 3,500 wholes. Each having opaque acrylic tubes installed connecting the inside and the outside. The tubes vary in size and makes it possible to look inside and out of the building and creates a natural ventilation. But the tubes also have another function. Each hole is equipped with a powerful full-color LED light source that can illuminate the tube and hereby the building. SENSORS The light sources in the tubes are controlled by 16 sensors - 8 which measures the current temperature in and around the facade, and 8 which measures the light. The sensors are installed and distributed on the façade giving a total picture of temperature and light conditions around the pavilion. The data from the sensors was interpreted by a specially created software that controlled and ran the light designs throughout the pavilion. Information from the light sensors controlled when and what visual effects to activate and the temperature affected the color temperature of the light design. CONCEPT One of the main concepts of the light designs has been to keep a natural and consistent look of the pavilion. This shows especially in the nightfall when the light is in the pavilion is slowly turned on. Whereas the holes in the facade appear as black windows during the day, they are lit in the evening and create a new layer of communication to the pavilion. The 627 pixels in length and nine in height are used for different effects, patterns and information that varies in intensity and speed. Light designs that surprises, entertains and informs, from subtle and understated experiences to more powerful and spectacular ones. FACTS Opening period: From the 1st of May 2010 to the 31st of October 2010 Visitors: More than 70,000,000 visitors in the exhibition area and more than 5,500,000 in the Danish Pavilion PAVILLON 300 meters of facade 2,800 m2 of exhibition space 1,300 tons of steel 230 m3 of water in the basin of the Little Mermaid LIGHT INSTALLATIONS 3,500 powerful full-color LED lamps 1,350 meter White LED Strips 8,500 meters power and signal cables Specially developed software for the management and settlement As well as a myriad of different lamp products Total budget for the Danish Pavilion in Shanghai: Dkr. 150,000,000 See www.vimeo.com/26428336 for more information about the design process behind the light designs PARTNERS CAVI, www.cavi.dk DUL, www.digitalurbanliving.dk Martin Professional, www.martin.com BIG, www.big.dk Project leader Media Facades, Rune Nielsen and Morten Lervig See the following link for more media architecture projects: https://vimeo.com/album/1809263

                Large buildings with changing usage require good sensors to analyze the room air. Symaro detectors assure the air quality and provide demand-driven building ventilation. Symaro measures temperature, CO2 concentration, air humidity and VOC levels in indoor air.

                  SELF PORTRAIT (2011) performance art by Francesca Fini + Gianluca Giardi Self Portrait è un pezzo di live art firmato da Francesca Fini e realizzato in collaborazione con Gianluca Giardi, artista visuale romano. Una tela nera si trova al centro dello spazio performativo. Sulla tela scorre un video che raccoglie un mosaico di immagini femminili scovate nel public domain americano degli anni ’60. E’ la dimensione “ephemeral” che svela lo stereotipo femminile e la sua distorsione nel periodo in cui nasce la cosiddetta società dell’immagine. La donna è via via veicolo pubblicitario, messaggera di campagne sociali, oggetto del desiderio maschile nei primi soft-porn in bianco e nero. Immagine apparentemente monocorde, ma in realtà misteriosa e ineffabile, che non permane perché il video scorre senza sosta, mandato avanti e indietro, rallentato e accelerato dalle dita veloci di Francesca che manipolano un costrittivo corsetto elettronico pieno di valvole e potenziometri. Un vestito/prigione/moviola che è anche vestito/prigione/strumento, uno strumento che compone un paesaggio sonoro noise in cui si perdono le parole di quelle donne del passato, mentre Gianluca cerca di trattenere i loro volti sulla tela con il gesso bianco. Self Portrait is a piece of live art by Francesca Fini, implemented in collaboration with Gianluca Giardi, visual artist of Rome. A black cloth is in the middle of the performance space. On the canvas runs a video that contains a mosaic of images of women in the 60s public domain. The "ephemeral" culture that reveals the stereotype of women and its distortion in the period surrounding the so-called image-obsessed society. She is and advertising vehicle, a messenger of social campaigns, the object of male desire in the first soft-porns in black and white. A picture that could be monotonous, but in reality is mysterious and ineffable, while the video runs, sent back and forth by the fast fingers of Francesca Fini handling a corset full of electronic valves and knobs. An electronic dress/prison that is also an instrument that makes up a noisy soundscape where you lose the words of those women of the past, while Gianluca tries to keep their faces on the canvas with white chalk.

                      This Urban Monitoring System is an open source infrastructure of networked devices collecting data. The data collected makes it possible to emulate the environmental surroundings of an individual. The system focuses on three of our six sensors; collecting visual data used to emulate sight, sound data to emulate hearing, and door data to emulate our sense of smell. Through the amalgamation of these different data sets it becomes possible to emulate what someone would be sensing at any location. By recording the data over time and adding a position you can reconstruct past sensory experiences. This project was developed as a research method to discover how our environmental setting affect our behaviour. Inspired by online methods of tracking and personalisation in order to optimise website layout. This project speculates how our real world personal data may be collected in order to optimise the build environment. Using the Urban Sensory Infrastructure we can reconstruct people’s sensory experiences prior to a certain type of behaviour. These experiences can then be analysed for shared environmental factors, allowing us to question whether these factors subconsciously prime people to behave in this way. Would this holistic method then allow us to hold others responsible for effecting our actions? Could we trace what environmental factors prime opportunistic crimes, impulse purchases, break our diets or even proposing irrational undying love for some one.
