← Back to Projects

In manifestations, lectures, performances, guided tours and concerts the visitors can test facilities how art and science approach each other.

Tuesday, January 6, 2015 11 am – 6 pm

For “Tag der offenen Tür” the concept of REMOTEWORDS is being expanded into a virtual game: a large-scale, individually accessible satellite picture of the exhibition premises (ZKM) invites each visitor to cover one roof with a message. The statements are forthwith applied to the satellite picture. Visitors can contribute statements on issues such as urbanity, navigation, digitality, virtual simulation and city (urban) space.At predetermined times, remote-controlled drones will fly over the 10 x 6 m walk-around satellite picture. The pilotless aircraft is equipped with a CCTV system that, during its flight, relays live images of the area below onto a projection wall. The live image is practically indistinguishable from a real flyover-video of Karlsruhe.
