“We really have to make up our minds on how to deal with media architecture”
How should content for permanent installations be developed? How can we do so without polluting public space with information? These are important questions to Thorsten Bauer, Creative Director of the Bremen based creative company URBANSCREEN.
“Basically, we’re at a very interesting point in time, when it comes to architecture, because the architectures start to move. For thousands of years we’ve planned steady architecture and now, with the technology of media architecture, architecture can change the colour, the shapes, over time,” he said when interviewed before heading off for Denmark and the biennale, where he’s a keynote speaker.
For URBANSCREEN – a world-famous collaboration of German artists and technicians who use architecture as their medium – one important challenge is to use the experience from temporary installations to make more permanent projects in the future. But there are also some challenges that anyone in the field of media architecture can relate to, e.g.:
“We really have to make up our minds how to deal with media architecture, especially in terms of over-information at the public space. You can point out a lot of critical aspects.”
