Networked Skin

Project for an interactive fašade installation at the Ars Electronica Center in Linz, Austria, 1994
Christian M÷ller/ Joachim Sauter

Internet users were invited to send images to be positioned according to their geographical origin onto a "virtual globe" The virtual globe is projected onto the facade of the building and can be rotated and navigated with the aid of a real globe set into the ground, and moving like a trackball. This 2m diameter interface allows night time passersby to navigate through this virtual portrait of the World Wide Web.
