DIA LIGHTS
As part of the media facade, DIA LIGHTS, at the HQ of The Confederation of Danish Industry (DI) - which Kollision realized earlier in collaboration with Martin Professional and Transform Architects - Kollision created a dynamic player system that allows for new plugins and lighting designs to be implemented over time. One of these was the interactive plugin, Urban Canvas.
URBAN CANVAS
Urban Canvas allows by-passers at the busy town square to interact with the facade by using their smartphones. By simply entering a mobile website, users can paint on the facade by swiping their finger across the touch screen of their smart phone, instantly painting with light on a 4,000 m2 urban canvas. Multiple users can use the system simultaneously; creating a busy and playful collaborative artwork that keeps on changing.
CULTURE NIGHT 2013
The ‘Urban Canvas’ was developed in dialogue with DI and implemented for the first time at ‘Culture Night 2013’ in Copenhagen. More than 2,500 citizens stopped by the central Town Hall Square and painted with light on the facade.
