Alien Worlds

Award: Wood Pencil

Wood Pencil / Digital Media / Digital Installations / 2006

Our image of aliens and what they might really look like is the theme of 'The Science of Aliens' exhibition. This exhibition joins the latest scientific insights with the vivid fantasies of filmmakers. ART+COM created an interactive room where visitors can get in touch directly with aliens. The creatures living on the planets 'Aurelia' and 'Blue Moon' move dynamically through virtual landscapes. The concept of the installations is to provide a collaborative experience environment, where the visitors can interact with the planets' alien life. Two sculptural, curved, touch sensitive projections of 2 metre width and 7.5 metre length provide a simultaneous overview and detailed perspective on the planets. Due to the museum dynamics, content was structured through generative storytelling in a simulated ecosystem. The visual design thus borrowed heavily from computer games, but combined them with photorealistic imagery as well as information graphics overlays.
