Pressemelding:LE PONT SOSIAL. OF TWO

Nullohm har i samarbeide med franske OIDEM installert den interaktive lys-installasjonen Of Two på Passerelle Simone De Beauvoir beliggende foran nasjonalbiblioteket i Paris.

Der vil den være en del av Oidem Artistic Researsh Studios kulturelle satsing The Social Brigde med installasjonen Of Two hvor temaet er den sosiale bruk av de offentlige rom.

Interaksjons designet er en fortelling om folks bevegelser på broen med sine buktende plan, en arkitektur tegnet for å skape rom og arena for opplevelser.

Sammen med vår Paris baserte partner Oidem har vi designet en leken installasjon som tar i bruk digital teknologi, sensorer og radionettverk for å skape lys som understreker arkitektene Feichtinger sosiale ideer.

Førtifire røde lysdiodelamper i form av to søylerader med vår Resonance System er programmert til å følge fotgjengerne ved å skape en bølge av lys foran og bak slik at broen vil fremstå med en rød glød som yrer av liv og forsterker dens rolle som landemerke i Paris.

Installasjonen vil bli brukt som ett bakteppe for en rekke kulturelle events som skal finne sted på broen gjennom de tre og en halv månedene utstillingen varer.

 

Nullohms utvikling av Resonance systemet har i mottatt støtte fra Innovasjon Norge og Norsk Kulturråd som en del av arbeidet med vår produktportofolie Respondent Elements som har mottatt stor interesse internasjonalt. Vår designfilosofi er å utvikle intelligente systemer som tilbyr nyttebelysning, men også energisparing, trygghetsskapende effekter og inspirerende miljø.

Of Two er da også en fullskala prototyp på en belysnings filosofi for fremtidens smarte byer, og skal lede til utviklingen av ett industrielt designprodukt med innovative kvaliteter ved å være ett såkalt Internet of things (IOT) produkt.

Prosjektet er en del av to festivaler; innovasjons festivalen Futur en Sein i slutten av juni, og den internasjonalt anerkjente kunstfestivalen Nuit Blanche i oktober.

Installasjonen åpnet for publikum Lørdag den 23 juni, med bla performance av Compagnie Karine Saporta, og vil vare frem til 6 oktober.

Pedestrian/bicycle passage in Sandvika, Norway

Located  between Bærum Kulturhus and the cinema there is a narrow passage for pedestrians and bicycles.  Lighting designer Linda Knoph Vigsnæs from Lystoff have been responsible for the lighting plan, and suggested a interactive light wall to brighten up the dark passage and create responsive visibility in an effort to ease the potential conflicts between cyclists and pedestrians.

Bærum Culture House is a respected stage for dance and theater, designed by Snøhetta Architects, so a Mnemosyne led wall seems like the perfect match with it´s theme of humans in motion.

To cover a larger stretch of the passage  and mirror the culture-house´s  vertical architecture Nullohm created the interactive modules in increasing sizes divided apart.

Sonomorph – the first run in the gallery, video

Nullohm has just finished a project for the architects at Bifokal – A sound activated interactive wall!
It consists of 70 modules that reacts with movement and light when it hears sound, it gets more vivid the louder sound. The modules consists of a special made circuitboard, programmed with the Arduino programming environment. A microphone is sensing the sound in the room, and triggers events in form of light and movement. All the modules are autonomus.
It was composed a special piece of music for the wall by Ali Parandian.
The film was shot the night before the exhibition opening, with an iPhone, so the quality isnt the best..

Final Touch at Louisiana, the video

Cleaning a piece of sensor based interactive architecture is in fact quite more fun than cleaning a non interactive piece of architecture, its so easy to see what area you have just washed. – see for your self at the video.

Nullohm to exhibit at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art

Nullohm has been invited to participate in this summers exhibition «Frontiers of Architecture III-IV LIVING» at Louisiana Museum of Modern Art (Copenhagen, Denmark).

We will participate with a 9 m2 Dobpler wall, which is identical to the installation we did in cooperation with Snøhetta in Sandnes, Norway, in 2008. Dobpler is a soft and extremely energy efficient «Light on Demand System» with an simple interaction that creates joy, visibility and attention. A preventive effect on negative behavior in public space, or simply ment as a inspiring attraction.

The system consists of modules that connects together to build whole interactive walls, either as covered area or spread out as lines or mosaica The system has a unique sensor technology that detects people motion as glowing shadows without the use of complicated technical installations. It is maintenance free and a simple to implement in architecture. Since 2008, the installation in Sandvika and the technology used has received international media coverage in architecture and design media. Since then we have developed a new generation system called «Mnemosyne», offering more interactive possibilities that can be tailor made for different projects.

This exhibition is a presentation of a classic, pioneering work, in interactive/narrative LED lighting for permanent use within architecture

 

 

Frontiers of Architecture III-IV LIVING
1. June – 2. October 2011

The Louisiana’s exhibition series Frontiers of Architecture I-IV, which the museum has been showing in the years 2007-2011, uses architecture’s deployment of other disciplines to illustrate the new movements and paths that are shifting the frontiers of architecture. With its overall theme LIVING, the last exhibition in the series, combining nos. III and IV and filling half the total exhibition space of the museum, turns the spotlight on the question “How does the Good Life look today?”
The exhibition highlights the tendencies and new departures facing architecture in a world of increasing globalization. How are the individual, the community and social relations conceived today? What do people dream about, and how do they live out these dreams, which are constantly expanding human notions of life styles and spaces for living?
Traditional family structures, urban structures and life modes are being challenged by new kinds of technology and communication as well as increased mobility. The exhibition LIVING focuses on architecture’s partnerships with human sciences like anthropology and sociology. These softer, less quantifiable sciences come to expression in the exhibition through crossovers between architectural projects and art installations and glimpses of current ‘case stories’ from various parts of the world where social development has created new dwelling styles.
The first two exhibitions in the series were Frontiers of Architecture I – Cecil Balmond: The Hidden Order and Frontiers of Architecture II – Green Architecture for the Future.
