Interactive Installation

Gregor Göttfert / Florian Kofler


The central object of the interactive, visual installation SPHÄRE (Sphere) is a 65 cm wide sphere.
Glimmering greenish-blue, it seems to float in the darkness of the space. Optical sensors slowly circle around the object, scanning and surveilling their surroundings like radar and projecting it, as a fading representation of space and time, onto the phosphorescing surface of the sphere.
In an apparitional way, the viewer is represented on the round object. Simultaneously, the changing dimensionality of SPHÄRE is visible:
through optical distortion and compression, its surface shows not only spatial dimensions but also the factor of time – and invites the visitors to think about existence on the surface of a sphere.
