Overloading/Overloaded: Touch Me Softly
This project is an individual part of Neigungsgruppe Medienfassade.
The Ars Electronica Center itself is being expanded to include touch-sensitive sensors which will be transformed into an interactive installation. The sensor-point placed on the façade by the entrance of the building invites visitors to touch, caress, scratch, strike and hit the building. Touch, in turn, creates wave animations that spread across the building. Overloading the sensors (eg. hard knocking) causes the whole façade to crash.
