Laufende Projekte

  • Moving Sound Pictures:
  • Moving Sound Pictures is a project in which users have the opportunity to interactively explore paintings by known and contemporary visual artists through playful actions using VR technology. Use your body to shift, enlarge or downsize objects of the paintings in a virtual-reality (VR) environment and make music with these objects! Get information about the painting and the artist such as historical aspects of the artwork, painting techniques, etc. Pictures become audible and a new musical instrument emerges! Everyone can create their artworks individually and discover the artwork from another perspective!
