LightSense combines kinetic construction with 3D holographic animations. An integrated neural network allows the structure to engage in an oral conversation with the visitor while immersing the audience in Pavilions of Love, Anger, Curiosity and Joy.

Von schwarzen Schwänen …
Kunstuniversität Linz (AT)

... or pink doves? The Ars Electronica Festival's Kunstunicampus attempts to think the seemingly impossible, to vision the unthinkable. Above all, the aim is to enable images and metaphors that carry a creative power within them and inspire us to create our own picture of our world.

Maa Kheru
Christian Kosmas Mayer (AT/DE)

Using CT scans of a 2000-year-old Egyptian mummy, the artist created an exact replica of the mummy’s vocal tract, which he then fitted with a movable silicone tongue. Mayer played this artificial vocal organ as though it were an instrument and produced a range of vocal sounds from which he then composed this multi-channel sound piece. Falling somewhere between science and poetic speculation, the resulting sounds take us into the depths of time and combine the archaic with the hypermodern.
