This wall plug by Julian Oliver and Danja Vasiliev doesn’t have a function related to electricity, instead it allows people to change the content of online newspapers that are read in computers using a public wi-fi. Check the Newsteek website for more info.

In this very minimalistic installation Markus Kison cleverly uses bone sound conduction transforming a public balustrade in an interface. By placing their elbows in the baustrade visitors can hear the sounds from the air attack that took place back in 1945 in the city of Dresden. The sound is reproduced using a cd player and amplifier that sends the sound through the metalic balustrade and that lately arrives to our ears via our arm bones.

Infravoice is a sound installation by Atsuno Bukohira. By using your voice and speaking or shouting into a cilinder installed in the exterior you’ll hear the echo from that sound some moments later. This sound is then transformed into a mass of energy that provokes an earthquake in the near surroundings. Check the project page here.



Access, 2003

Access is a public art installation by the French artist Marie Sester that “calls for awareness of the implications of surveillance, detection, celebrity, and their impact on society”.

Using a computer vision system people are followed by a robotic spotlight controled by web users.

My little piece of Privacy


Niklas Roy created this clever cute curtain for his window’s workshop in Berlin that is able to move according to passers-by movement and position in the street. The piece gives birth to a funny situation giving a comic character to an everyday life object.

In the words of the artist “the whole setup works really well. But in the end, it doesn’t protect my privacy at all. It seems that the existence of my little curtain is leading itself ad absurdum, simply by doing its job very well. My moving curtain attracts the looks of people which usually would never care about my window. It is even the star of the street, now! My curtain is just engaged. And because of that, it fails.”
