MENSCH-MASCHINEN-TRÄUME // MAN-MACHINE DREAMS

„After living with machines, humans dream of machines. What do the machines dream after living with humans?“

 A poetry film about flickering pixels, tenderness and approach, horror and familiarity - pictorial reflections on the everyday interaction between man and machine, performed by human-like computer voices.

Poem by Clemens Hornemann, based on reflections and texts by Thomas Brasch 

PANOPTICON – MODULARE LEINWAND // MODULAR CANVAS

The theatre/video performance "Panopticon" dealt with the theme of totalitarian surveillance and escape from it. Set up on a stage, there were several cubes on which projections could be seen. Individual people had been trapped in their own cube spaces without noticing it and pursued their everyday activities (projection). They were observed by two supervisors (real people/actors). Due to a mistake made by one of the trapped individuals he is put into a special white-cube by one of the supervisors. The other people notice their own imprisonment and try to escape.

Realized together with Timm Weber in a project course of Prof. J. Huefner and Prof. J. Hintzer

VRCAR

In my project for the mixed reality course Maschinenmensch, I set myself the task to build an application that takes place in the real and virtual world of the user/player at the same time. I built a remote controlled car out of Arduino microcontrollers and equipped it with a small camera and a flashlight. Using a VR headset, the player was then able to operate and control the car out of the perspective of the car. After that, I designed a parkour which is unlit and through which you had to steer the car towards a red flashing light.

Technique: Two Arduino microcontrollers, one to drive the car, the other - via 2.4 GHz ISMBand transmitters connected - as remote control. The "Arduino remote control" was connected via USB to the game engine and VR software Unity. As camera and flashlight I used an Android smartphone, which was connected to Unity via WLAN. As VR-Headset an HTC vive pro was used.

Studie eines Einsatzes

In order to point out the importance of breathing in music, I wanted to use the sounds of inhaling and exhaling to trigger different breathing sounds from conductors and string ensembles. With a microphone positioned under the nose, the airflow of inhaling and exhaling is measured. The data is now passed on to a PC. With the help of Pure Data, the incoming peaks trigger the found-footage videos of inhaling musicians depending on the volume level of the users inhaling.
