Zeichenstadt ikonia

« back  next »

An interactive installation with a large scale open-air projection.
Created as a contribution to the grand re-opening of the newly moved city library in Bremen.

During the weekend of the opening celebrations, the audience was invited to built little comic-style creatures using a web interface. At night the new-born citizens of ikonia came out and filled the sign-city Ikonia with life. The sign-citizens of Ikonia were controlled by an algorithm that allowed each individual to vividly interact and communicate with the other Ikonians, using a sign language specifically designed for this purpose.
