MAY 2012

The Emschergenossenschaft & Lippeverband work together in partnership as the largest waste water disposal company and operator of sewage treatment plants in Germany.

235 MEDIA has created an interactive table model to present the complex circulation of water and energy. It comprises of two seamless monitors, a touchscreen and 3D models. Using a menu, the circulation of sewage disposal and the connections between the supply and the consumption of energy are presented and explained, as are the generation and use of heat. The monitor surfaces are covered with a glass panel and complemented in certain areas with 3D models, such as wind turbines, thermal power stations, and gas storage facilities. Via the touchscreen mounted to the side, the visitor can call up various categories and observe the circulation and flow of heating, electricity, sewage gas, and waste water via the large displays. The system can, with minimal effort, be adjusted to reflect new processes and technologies.

The 3D brand room is the public face of Bayer AG at their new headquarters in Beijing. In this building, completed in 2006 by the gmp architects von Gerkan, Marg and Partner, a visitors centre has been set up on the third floor, a third of which is made up of an interactive room installation. Here, the three topics of “Climate + Resources”, “Nutrition” and “Health” are presented through a progressive, interactive design and an attached lighting display, also describing the related global challenges. At the heart of the display are three interactive tables, upon which thematically arranged “product stories” are presented; for example, the contribution made by Bayer AG to solving existing problems.

The basis of this application is a server based presentation tool developed by 235 MEDIA – the Interactive Cross-linked Media Database. Thanks to its flexible architecture, this software system enables the use of different presentation media (touchscreens, interactive tables, websites etc.) and allows a location-specific adjustment and worldwide updating of complex content via a server. The software contains a CMS (Content Management System), which enables the adding and configuration of data with different regional points of focus. The updating of clients in numerous international locations is performed by a web server, through an automatic update routine.

The system created for Bayer AG has locations around the world and is available in the following languages: English, German, Chinese, Finnish, Polish, Russian and Spanish.

235 Media developed and implemented the entire media technology and an interactive table featuring a 3D Depth Sensor for gesture control for the “Our Daily Bread“ exhibit.

The visitors can interactively take a meal from a conveyor belt at the table and gather information with regard to water consumption, CO2-emmission, price and caloric expenditure for diverse food items. A table with 4 empty plates is on display. A conveyor belt with trays containing diverse food items, from which the visitors can extract one by hand gesture runs through the centre of the table. Information regarding the water consumption, CO2-emmission, price and caloric expenditure for diverse food items can be obtained for each individually assembled plate. Each piece of information is incited in an interactive and entertaining manner.

27. October – 3. November 2010

On the occasion of the trade expo K2010, an Interactive Product Portfolio was developed for Bayer Material Science. A total of 20 interactive interfaces allow for an intuitive access to over 80 product stories. A strict structure for interaction and a clearly designed interface make of easy access and orientation within the stories. An ambient modus visualises the five theme areas by generating the actual data structure as a 3D-room. This “data room” loads the stories into the interface. The core of the application is the central data bank with all contents which are administered via a web based Content Management System (CMS).

Gary Hill

CLIENT: Fondation Cartier
SEPTEMBER 2007

Exploding the walls that divide the media, Gary Hill digs into questions of perception and meaning in complex and challenging ways that always place the viewer inside an undeniable situation of presence and physicality. Making use of an array of elements and layered meaning, he has created two new large-scale works for his solo exhibition at the Fondation Cartier pour l’art contemporain. Gary Hill puts the notion of value into perspective—its significance, its ambiguity, the value of art as well as of money—through works that question our systems of thought and our symbolic construction of the world.

On the real gold bar in the center of the oil lake it is written: “For everything which is visible is a copy of that which is hidden”
