The Oskar-von-Miller tower is used by the world-renowned Technische Universität München to obtain precise weather data and conduct meteorological research. In October 2010, a team of top architects and lighting designers were hired to develop a solution to transform the soaring tower into a signature landmark and communication tool. When the originally-planned illumination systems were unable to meet the demands and challenges presented by the Oskar-von-Miller Tower transformation, the team turned to Traxon & e:cue for a dynamic lighting solution. 25 Traxon Dot XL-3 RGB systems and 23 Traxon String RGB systems, resulting in a total of more than 5,000 pixels of light, were paired with 16 e:cue Butlers and a Lighting Control Engine (LCE) to successfully solve the visibility, precision, budgetary, and timeline challenges posed by the project.(more…)

With the newly reoriented direction of Manu Park, the NJP Art Center will seek to strengthen its role to develop initiatives to revitalize Paik’s artistic legacy. As a first step in doing so this year, the NJP Art Center is delighted to present a new exhibition “Mediascape, à pas de Nam June Paik.” This exhibition picks up on the notion of ‘mediascape,’ which was put forward by scholars such as anthropologist Arjun Appadurai (1990) and art historian David Joselit (2005).
In the two-storey space of the NJP Art Center, the works of Nam June Paik and other artists will be mingled together. The whole space will be made to constitute a kind of seamless mediascape where visitors play its ‘topography’ out in a bodily manner, and thus the Paikian way of living in the mediascape can come out in performative and revelatory ways. Additionally, we will also use the façade of the Seoul Square building, located across from the Seoul Station, as part of our exhibition space, which was realized in cooperation with Gana Mplanet. One of Paik’s “Suite 212″ video series will be projected every night onto the huge screen, soaring 256 feet high and stretching 325 feet wide, which consists of 42,000 LEDs, so that the two physically distant sites are connected within this exhibition’s mediascape. The exhibition is an effort to pave the way for a new prospect to lay open the embedded but hitherto veiled layers of the Paikian mediascape.
Autostadt, the visitor attraction centre adjacent to the Volkswagen factory in Wolfsburg, Germany, featured a main façade with an integrated Neon installation that needed to be replaced. The new installation had to adhere to three major design criteria: it had to simulate the original neon installation, blend seamlessly with the building’s clean, modern architecture and it had to remain true to Volkswagen’s values of environmental protection and sustainable development.(more…)
AHL realized a new shopping mall using it´s S-9 Pixel installed behind a glass façade with circular pattern. The screen has a size of 460 M2 and uses 20,000 Pixels with a pitch of 150mm.(more…)
‘Lotus 7.0′ is a living wall made out of smart foils which fold open in response to human behavior. Walking by ‘Lotus 7.0′, hundreds of aluminium foils unfold themselves in an organic way; generating transparent voids between private and public.Here physical walls become immaterial, through a poetic morphing of space and people.(more…)
Commissioned for Milan 2010, Jason Bruges Studio’s latest creation is a captivating artwork featuring Lumiblade OLEDs.
Mimosa is an interactive artwork displaying behavior that mimics responsive plant systems.The piece was inspired by the Mimosa family of plants, which change kinetically to suit their environmental conditions.
The studio has used the slim form of individual OLEDs to create delicate light petals, forming flowers, which open and close in response to visitors.(more…)
Sunlight and new media are fascinating! Let’s redirect and pixelate natural light! Pixel Sonne integrates the unchangeable dynamic and ephemeral beauty of sunlight to form a media façade.
It is a responsive yet subtle medium that uses the universal language of natural light to spark communication amongst people. Pixel Sonne is based on high-tech devices but evokes a feeling of only slightly touching digital aspects.(more…)
BLIP’s new installation for the artist Daniel Canogar marks the opening of the Spanish Presidency of the EU. Between 28th and 30th December 2009 BLIP completed this major art installation in the Council of the European Union, Brussels. Collaborating with Daniel Canogar, BLIP has used its P37 display and PixelBus technology to realise a 37m LED sculpture suspended 10m above the ground in the atrium of the Justus Lipsius building. Conceived as a looping strip of display visible in daylight, the installation allows Canogar’s work to reflect in the glass and marble surfaces of the atrium, creating a very large field of moving imagery depicting migration and the transforming population of the EU.(more…)
