Exhibition about the work of the Max Planck Institute CBG
PLACING RESEARCH INTO LIGHT
The interactive installation “Placing Research Into Light” visualizes and interprets the basic research of the Dresden Max Planck Institute of Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics.
In the entrance hall of the MPI, videos and generative animations depicting the work of researchers in the labs are dynamically projected onto the walls to a broad audience. The shown animations can be changed interactively in two ways. Terminals based on actual laboratory equipment allow for direct and targeted intervention. Indirect and rather passive changes are triggered by passers-by in the halls of the institute.
The project aims to initiate a multimedia discourse between interested laymen and scientists and to offer a fresh new perspective for communication at the institute.
