RC4 in London researches computational design methodologies for large-scale 3D printing with industrial robots, taking logistical, structural and material constraints as design opportunities to generate non-representational architectural spaces with extreme information density.
Created by Simon de Diesbach at ECAL with the support from Alain Bellet, Gael Hugo, and Christophe Guignard, OccultUs is an installation that exploits the potential of the Oculus technology by immersing the user in a sensory experience that mixes two distinct realities and simulated.
Developed at the Ars Electronica Futurelab, Spaxels (a portmanteau word from space pixels) are LED-equipped quadcopters. They make up a drone swarm that can “draw” three-dimensional figures in midair.
Nimbes is an audio-visual installation designed for 360º immersive environments exploring boundaries between natural and artificial, and questioning the solitary nature of perception and observation and their relationship to both the cosmic and human scale.
Minibuilders is a research project comprised of a family of small-scale construction robots designed to perform diverse tasks, linked to the different phases of construction, finally working together as a family towards the implementation of a single structural outcome.
Commissioned by Caviar House & Prunier for London Heathrow Terminal 2, “Emergence” is a new light installation by London based Cinimod studio.
Opening this Saturday (April 26) and presented by the Art Museum of Lugano in Switzerland, 36 ventilators, 4.7m³ packing chips is the new installation by Zimoun, swiss born and Bern based artists known for his architecturally-minded platforms of sound.
Created by Shohei Fujimoto, Power of One #Point is an installation exploring input and output using laser and reflecting mirrors.
The installation consist of moving lights that continuously illuminate space from different angles creating an intersections of form, perspective and shadow. In almost pure darkness the visitor is invited to explore the derelict space as details are illuminated and space reshaped.
Tesseract – also known as the HyperCube, is the latest installation by the Paris based collective 1024 Architecture comprised of a 3d sculptural cube equipped with moving light, where the audience is invited to walk in.
Created by Olivier Ratsi, an artist on the ANTIVJ visual label, Onion Skin is a new immersive installation comprised of two walls, positioned at right angles and augmented by a projection and a 5.1 sound broadcast.
Benedikt Groß is a speculative and computational designer whose work is often featured on here on CAN. We recently interviewed him in order to glean a little insight about Benedikt’s thoughts his recent work, ‘outsider’ cartography, and generative strategies.
