Merge is an immersive installation using 3D generated images, projection mapping and multiple fabric layers to create an holographic experience. Asked by oldest Shortfilm Festival in the world in Oberhausen Germany to create a large scale installation, the studio reacted and explored in a playful way the space between human beings and their surrounded technological devices.
Using Cinema4D, ZBrush and MadMapper, MERGE shows a digitally sculpted bust, representing a head, and a fossil phone which encounter each other and create a space inbetween. A box filled with abstract shapes represents the enclosed space when humans completely merge with their devices. The last part of the projections show how the phone and the bust tear apart and result in fragments floating through time and space.
Artists and DJ’s, such as DJ Hell from Berlin the local Ruhrarea label Ana Ott and the festivals filmmaker DJs filled the space every night with different sounds and attracted a large number of people from all over the world.
