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 on the surface of a field of brown bricks, telling stories and asking questions about Swiss design research. A silent film screened on a patch of white-painted bricks followed the life of an industrial robot who built the wall.
