Momentrium #3 Mars

The new piece of Momentrium series was shown in a big dome called Mariendome in Linz.

This project #3 Mars expresses a real-time position of the Mars. A robotic arm of the object has an illuminated arrow and moves slowly, and the arrow points to the position of the Mars. Sometimes, the robot arm starts to play the record of the complicated movement of the Mars.

The city of Linz is known for a city where Johannes Kepler, who found the laws of planetary motion, lived there in the early 17th century. Although the movement and order of the Mars have never changed in the context of the Earth and the universe, he provoked questions where we human beings were standing on. In a public place of the city of Linz, the illuminated arrow gently asks us a question for what we human beings are standing on the earth, in 21 century.

Changing a doguma is not always easy. However, the changing position of the Mars pointed by the arrow reminds us curiosity for how the world is changing, as Kepler explored.

Project Genesis

Place : Ars Electronica Center Linz Austria

Time : August 1-



Do we still need streetlights if we can make trees glow in the dark? Is it high time to bring extinct animal species back to life? After all, we’ve progressed so far that we can not only read genetic information; we can write it too. But aside from the fact that we’re capable of these things … is doing them also a good idea?

The Ars Electronica Center’s new exhibition offers artistic, scientific and social perspectives on the multifarious issues that arise when human beings are forming life in the lab.

In this exhibition, our new projects Momentrium #1 Core and #2 Future are exhibited.

Momentrium #2 Future Test

We are currently working on the new work named Momentrium #2 Future. This kinetic art by illuminating arrow will point at the directions of the Future. If you approach to this object, the arrow will realize you and will be guiding you to the next direction. The Momentrium is a series of lighting arrows in different size and movement. The arrow represents directions of invisible force where we can’t reach physically.
