NODE 15 - Forum for Digital Arts

April 2015, NODE 15 -  Forum for Digital Arts, Naxoshalle Frankfurt

The Digital Design Unit participated in the Node 15 Festival for Digital Arts in Frankfurt with the project Sensitive Assembly – Gracefully assisted by machines that sense and know.

Within the leitmotif ‘Wrapped in Code – the future of the informed body’ this project invites festival participants to play a Jenga-like game: Starting from a solid wall, players are asked to remove and replace its building blocks to create windows to a nurturing light while challenging its stability. The physical interaction is guided by a computational system that senses the current state of the wall and predicts its future fate: an approaching collapse or a new beam breaking through.
