“MetaBody” is a Europe Culture project involving the media artists, digital music composers, choreographers, dancers, performers, programmers, designers, and architects from 7 different countries to cooperate and develop projects and performances (http://metabody.eu/). The major discourse of the MetaBody is to question the homogenization expressions educated by the current information mediums and to release and induce the already-formulated body by interacting with pro-activeness architectural space. All the projects here were built in 1:1 scale where the students have to not only confront the construction matters through Digital Fabrication but also to implement the physical computing in the project to make an interactive installation as an immersive proactive space.
Reflect-ego is an interactive/proactive ceiling with its own will and behaviors designed by 2014 HyperBody MSc2 students: Oana Anghelache, Rob MoorsGuus Mostart, Eldin Fajkovic, Jacqueline Huang, and Mick van Rooijen.
roboZoo is a swarm of automatic robots with intimate interaction designed by Chris Pydo, Guang Yang, Jan Paclt, Kasper Siderius, Radoslaw Flis, Javid Jooshesh.
Reflectego aims to discuss the balance of physical and imagery components in our brain’s construction of reality. The view and experience that we hold of space and our position in it consist of both actual objects and altered descriptions that we interpret to represent reality. By visually distorting the space in our surrounding and by unexpected repositioning of the self in relation to the environment through movement, awareness can be created of the proprioceptive determination and our self-perception in the twilight of the physical and virtual world.
RoboZoo aims at establishing the artificial environment of the interactive swarm of robots. Synergetic integrity with such a substance is the subject of our interest. Investigation of models of behaviours plays a paramount role in the presented concept. The possibility of shaping the environment by artificial creatures bring about the potential for dynamic system and its adaptability to the outer and inner changes.
