Future Fashion Workshop

The Goethe-Institut is organised a workshop, seminar and fashion show around the topic of smart textiles and wearable technologies. The programme promoted young designers and encouraged dialogue among professionals in a diverse range of areas such as fashion, material science, digital technology and social product design.

I was invited with Elektrocouture to curate and mentor it.


Luzia Dress

The “Rising Red” dress was built by Cirque du Soleil’s C: LAB in collaboration with Moritz Waldemeyer. It is able to create a dress that goes into full bloom right in front of your eyes on stage for LUZIA.

My work was to create and pre-render the visuals and animations happening on the dress.

By extrapolating from current trends, we can make some good guesses about future astonishing shows. Yet, when we think of future of nightlife , too often we restrict our imagination to particular areas: more gadgets for musicians, more lights, more projections, etc. But some of the truly exciting developments will be around festivals and shows that will improve culture and catalyze our creativity.

New technologies offer us opportunities for shaping the public spaces in which people move, behave and interact. It can even can accommodate a wide range of creative uses. The future idea would be that the whole festival’s space would be constantly changing, and everybody would be able to interact with it.

That’s why we are developing a space for the attendees to create a collective sculpture. The users will be able to place different building block pieces, anywhere on the table. The relationship between shapes and the positions will generate a soundscape of its own, as well as light patterns underneath the pieces.

PNC Beacon

The PNC Beacon, opened October 1st, 2015, in downtown Pittsburgh in the Lobby of the new PNC Tower. The smart skyscraper sensors and data system provide the mix information for data driven light displays and soundscapes responding to weather, energy usage, and all the elements that make this brilliant green building.

In collaboration with Bruce Odland we created an automated sound world and workings for this futuristic and entirely useful sculpture.

Led Costume Burning Man 2015

For the Burning Man 2015 Erevos Aether (, designed and made two costumes, where Moritz Waldemeyer created costume-made LED and Laser boards be to placed into the suits.

I was commissioned to design and create the visual patterns responding to the ambient sound. I therefore created a software to match any kind of visuals onto the geometry of both costumes and implemented the firmware for the visual playback.


Quiet is the New Loud

For the Bruges Contemporary Art and Architecture Triennial 2015 O+A acoustically decode the city. Using mobile sound installations, a walking trail through a unique sound experience, a sound platform and a carillon composition, it opens the visitor’s ears to the sounds and silences of a small city like Bruges.

Navigate the city like a bat by listening to the reverberations of buildings. You set off with a floating speaker that is activated at certain locations by a GPS-driven network. The architectural environment is made audible through echolocation.
