Ben van Berkel & the Theatre of Immanence / Portikus Frankfurt am MainNovember 23, 2007
The architectural installation, entitled “The Thing”, is designed by Städelschule professor for architecture Ben van Berkel together with Prof. Johan Bettum and Luis Etchegorry. The Frankfurt-based design-groups MESO Web Scapes and MESO Digital Interiors have developed a projection work that elaborates on the installation by dynamically embellishing it with moving images and thereby activating its surfaces.
The projection work, “On Things Off Things On”, is a case study in augmented architecture. It is an attempt to create a reactive surface of extraordinary spatial complexity.
Exhibition opening: 24 November 2007, 8 p.m. Duration: 25 November 2007– 13 January 2008
