Csoma's Wheel

Prayer wheel powered LED display in the Himalaya

New media installation in Sándor Kőrösi Csoma’s(?) sanctuary.

Flashing prayer-wheel: pieces of a bicycle and concrete, in a place where even Lara Croft couldn’t get to. In Ladakh, a region of the Himalayas, Kitchen Budapest, a technology focused media lab, has prepared a relatively low-tech installation: Csoma’s wheel. This installation is appalling and unique both in its material and in its form.

LED Figs facade

Display system
April 1 - June 20

LED Figs facade is a computer controlled display system made of 300 greed molded plastic pixels, about the sized of a fig. We place these in the windows of Kitchen Budapest, so we can communicate with the streets and square outside. We are sending out data from the internet, like yesterdays weather, visits to our site, many things that fit in 300 pixels on 30 meters.

The system is built by www.nextlab.hu, can be controlled by DMX individually, and we will be setting it up at other places in other configurations.

Multi touch wall

Our multi touch wall is a 2 by 1 meters touch sensitive surface, where one can interact with the projected media with one's fingers, hands, as well as more people at a time. We programmed a set of simple applications, where one can paint with hands, navigate a mind-map collaboratively, for example. We built this interface so we can learn and develop interesting and new kinds of contents for such interfaces, which are becoming more and more popular nowadays.
