This project is an interactive installation that takes the visitor to a dream world of colourful light and sound.
The led forest let you experience and manipulate the scene, only with the movement of your hands. The grid of LED
tubes projects the position and movement of your hands in the 3D space. It is controlled by moving the hands above
a sensor. If you move your hands up or down the light in the grid is also moving up and down,, depending on the
angle of your hands the colours change and if you make a fist it turns white. When nobody is controlling, a pattern
animation starts that remembers the last colour of every LED. The idea was developed for the Kleinlaut festival
2016. In 2017 I developed an new interaction concept with the glowing cube on the socket as a guide for the users.
For the realization I worked together with Kyra Rychner, an IAD student, at ZHDK.

Monkey Stage Design
Sam, one of the creators of the Honeybadger event series, approached us with the request to create a visual show
around a party with the headliner monkey safari. They already planned to build a “jeep” frame around the dj set.
I had the idea to create a 3D world and project it behind the jeep to make it look like the jeep is driving towards
the crowd. We decided to create 5 scenes that the jeep will drive through. I designed the 3D models of the animals
and plants in Cinema 4D and Florian created the environments. We then put everything together and animated it.
We also mapped the jeep itself and enlightened it with an additional projector to make the installation even more

Beauty lies in the eye of the beholder. However, each perspective forms and changes it, up to the point where the surroundings are reflected by the subject. The interactive installation FLØJE tries to make this process tangible und invites the viewer to form, change and observe it. This piece of art was designed for and displayed at the Kleinlaut Festival 2017 in Brugg. Together with Florian we created several prototypes until we developed our final concept. During realization, Florian took care of the electronics and I created the 2D parts for the case in Affinity Designer and cut them out with a laser cutter. I also maintained the project time schedule, organized a team of helpers and managed the assembly of all the parts.
