DarkMatr Public Show
After 2 residencies at iMAL, Tom Heene and his colleagues artists, developers and scientists show during 3 days the results of the project Dark Matter. The research project investigates the way data from the web and our physical world can be merged and presented in a total user experience. It is supported by the Art&D programme of Interdisciplinary Institute for Broadband Technology. Partners are the Center for User Experience Research - CUO (KUL), WICA (UGent), NODEBOX and LAHAAG.
DarkMatr investigates the way data from the web and our physical world can be merged and presented in a total user experience. The installation will use representations that are recognizable for humans and which humans can empathize with. We are interested in how to visualize complex patterns generated from the combination of physical and virtual data.
By means of the development of an immersive environment, in which a user is part of the system, the data visualization will be presented in an interactive sensory experience. We try to combine movements of a human body as an input device with data and tools originating from the internet. Through this, DarkMatr aims to create a cinematic experience, which we believe empowers immersivity.
