Mimodek

keep reading
MIMODEK

MIMODEK is an interactive-evolving and changing 'living' system, based on the principles of the natural world that 'grows' from the fabric of the city.
As all living systems in nature, MIMODEK reflects its own environment.
It is a site-specific work, formed by unique, location – related data sources and by the behaviour of the visitors. Every installation will evolve into unique an 'organism', reflecting its location.
MIMODEK does not visually mimic nature, but it introduces the city to some of the natural elements that are lacking.

Air Hunger

The project creates a large-scale interactive projection, where the breathing pattern of a participant generates a landscape for a virtual character to move.
People can participate in the projection by wearing a wireless breath rate-monitoring belt around their chest. The belt is given to one person at a time and he/she can walk freely in front of the projection area, while producing an undulating landscape in real time via the Bluetooth modem.

The Park

keep reading
The Park

The Park is a video panorama depicting space between the domesticated and the wild, a transmission stage between urban and natural environment. The sports park is an autonomous zone with its own rules: in parks, things beyond the daily habits can be done.
The piece is realised through intricate video techniques combining concrete places and characters in our daily life experience: architecture, people and symbols from a globalised world, Helsinki and Berlin. It plays with the themes of urbanity / periphery, rationality/ irrationality, tourism, sports and ecstasy.
