The LivingSculpture 3D module system

The award winning and Berlin based designer has teamed up with PHILIPS to design a revolutionary modular system of light installation by using OLED’s (Organic Light Emitting Diodes), a break through in lighting that fascinate by their endless possibilities to create new forms of light as they are emitting light in form of super flat (1,8mm) panels when electricity is applied.
The new technology has made possible what Christopher Bauder’s dream in design has always been: using technology and transferring bits and bytes into real spaces of offices, museums, bars, and airports and by re-interpreting this light technology in his art and design. For designers like Bauder and customers the possibilities for using these OLED panels seem endless due to their technical specifications: there is no necessity for framing the waver-thin mirror panels to supply them with electricity. Little metal clips attached to the panels supply electricity and due to their panel-like elegant surface they emit a warm area-lighting.

The LivingSculpture 3D module system consists of a base plate and connecting rods with the fine thin OLEDs at their ends. A plug-and-play system controlled through an iPad allows for the customer to create completely new magic light arrangements remotely and dive into an ocean of light. Bauder has chosen a wavy arrangement in the design of his example installation, which reflects the flexibility and delicate impression of OLEDs. Fascination by an outstanding combination of three-dimensionality and elegance. Pictures @ FLICKR  Website of WHITEVOID http://www.whitevoid.com

ACDC Vs Iron Man 2

On the site of a thousand years of violent history, ACDC were pitted against Iron Man in a ground breaking architectural projection mapping project. The front facade of the Great Keep at Rochester Castle, was brought to life using the latest in 3D animation techniques. This onslaught of the senses, saw the castle confront it's ultimate challenge. Warping, morphing, spewing and collapsing before the audiences eyes. Let there be rock!



Journalism at the Age of Data

Journalists are coping with the rising information flood by borrowing data visualization techniques from computer scientists, researchers and artists. Some newsrooms are already beginning to retool their staffs and systems to prepare for a future in which data becomes a medium. But how do we communicate with data, how can traditional narratives be fused with sophisticated, interactive information displays?

Future Proof by DMC Initiative

DMCI developed this piece as a response to the 2011 A/NZ PromaxBDA Conference title of Future Proof. Our approach was to focus not on futuristic notions but to consider that which is timeless. People, the expression of self and the interactions between each other are timeless qualities relevant to creativity, no matter what the future holds.
