Amsterdam Diorama by  Diorama Map Amsterdam from the ‘Sohei Nishino: Cities’ project

An interview wth Sohei Nishino about this project. The blanks on the wall behind him are the photos that people bought during the fair. I found it amusing the Red Light District part of Amsterdam disappeared off the wall. You could see the complete wall in my earlier post here.

Trust the Cloud

One by one, visitors will be invited to ascend the 5m high escalator, generating light as they go. A giant cloud lies at the top. Jumping into the cloud, triggers an explosion of light. Each individual fall is bathed in its own type of light, which eventually fades away. What remains is a snapshot of a falling person, taken at the time of the jump. This individual moment is quickly transfigured into a collective experience, as each photograph joins a swarm of moving images uploaded to the ‘cloud’, exhibited on a screen next to the cloud and on a dedicated website – an invisible network made visible.

The Human Printer 

An interactive art project run by design studio Stinsensqueeze, the art work was developed during the four days of the festival.
