Light+Building (L+B) is an international fair that took place in Frankfurt (April 23 – 26). Seems to be interesting also in respect to mediafacades. I took a closer look at the catalogue: The  following companies have shown interesting products or proejcts that could be usefull for mediafacades g-lec | you will see | grid type LED curtain, Leurocom – Electronic Displays, Tryka L.E.D. Ltd – Home,  Lumileds LED Lighting – Luxeon LEDs,  ARKANZ – Home,  ECKELT GLAS GmbH.

In parallel to L+B there is a light art festival called Luminale with interesting projects. Here are some Pictures from Luminale. L+B is biannual event. Next fair is April 2008.

Blinken Lights

Blinken Lights seems to be a perfect start, though it’s not a typical mediafacade – but what is the typical mediafacade by the way. I like it that much because it’s devoted to the public and invites to interaction. Unfortunately the technical principle of Blinken Lights – which is bright halogen flood light behind a diffusion layer – seems only to make sense in buildings that are empty. Check out more at Blinken Lights website. This Animation was created by Djenia Beliaikin with Blinkenpaint 2.4, a open source software by CCC.

This project has been shown at the Media Facades Exhbition Berlin 2008 and was published in the Exhibition Companion (download the Catalogue Pdf – 7 Mb).
