T_VISIONARIUM OPEN CITY
2008 w/ VPRO
As part of Urban Century, a crossmedia collaboration between the VPRO (Dutch public broadcaster) and the Architecture Biennale Rotterdam, I developed together with Jeffrey Shaw and iCinema, TVisionarium OPEN CITY.
T_Visionarium OPEN CITY is an installation about a century of urbanisation in which documentaries, reports, and interviews are presented in innovative fashion and in three dimensions. The 360º installation, 3 metres tall and 10 metres wide, offers visitors a spectacular, new film experience and the chance to browse by themselves through the material and remix it.
T_Visionarium is an innovative interface developed by iCinema Research Centre researchers at the University of New South Wales, Australia: Neil Brown, Dennis del Favero, Matthew McGinity, Jeffrey Shaw, along with Peter Weibel of the ZKM Centre for Art and Media Karlsruhe. Shaw , co-director of the iCinema Centre and Dean of the School of Creative Media, City University Hong Kong, is an artist internationally renowned as a pioneer in the field of new media. Del Favero, Director of the iCinema Centre is internationally recognised for his photography, video and new media.
T_Visionarium OPEN CITY is an initiative within the framework of the VPRO series Urban Century in collaboration with the 4th International Architecture Biennale Rotterdam (IABR), Open City: Designing Coexistence, the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam, the Netherlands Institute for Sound and Vision, Images for the Future, and the iCinema Research Centre.
