Aether induction house is an architecture prototype looking into ways of
treating digital media as physical matter.
The surface of a computer projection is unfolded onto a translucent structure,
becoming a spatial experience for the visitors. Layers of digital information,
behavior and ambience are sharing projection territories, and creating a
vision for a non-screen based computer environment.
This enhanced physical space serves as a test bed for creating a
blend between architectural and new media designs.
Process and venues
This project is an ongoing research and development process where we hope
to explore some pressing issues that architecture is facing today with the advance
of new technologies into the social realms. Exhibitions are used as a test bed for later
evaluation, how certain issues and spatialities are responded to by visitors and the
Induction house (version1) was first exhibited at Mücsarnok (Kunsthalle Budapest) within
the Közben show about contemporary Hungarian Architecture in October 2003.
Distributed projection space nr1, an installation exploring precision projections,
initial concepts for induction house, will be shown at pixelACHE festival
at Kiasma, Helsinki, 2004 April.
To reach a larger, human scale installation, we are developing V2 for the ISEA2004 conference also in Helsinki, 2004 August.
