Art+Com founder Prof Joachim Sauter talks about 3 fascinating kinetic projects he developed for BMW, Otto Bock and Deutsche Bank.
BMW: See 714 metal spheres, hanging from thin steel wires attached to individually-controlled stepper motors and covering the area of six square meters, animate a seven minute long mechatronic narrative.
Otto Bock: For the World Expo Shanghai 2010 Art+Com interprets the theme of movement with a dynamic yet poetic mirror installation. One hundred prosthetic hands arranged in a matrix revolve around their own vertical axis, the movements being controlled by motors. The mirrors they hold reflect the beam of a floodlight into the room and onto the wall opposite.
Deutsche Bank: The Bank’s Logo by Anton Stankowski serves as starting point for the spatial design and is now translated into three-dimensional narrative space.
