ExplorationsThree projection interventions

An undulating brick wall became the canvas for three projection interventions in the Swiss Pavilion during the Venice Architecture Biennale of 2008. Animated typography and talking heads appeared to glow from the very surface of the brown bricks, asking questions and telling stories about Swiss design research. The film appearing on a patch of white followed the life of an industrial robot who built the wall on site, brick by brick.
