An interactive installation for the SAP training center

This 20ft high digital monolith consists of a total of 24 screens with mirror surfaces. Besides the time of day, the trilateral tower can show handwritten quotes, abstract representations and other content. For this installation, conceived by Ars Electronica Futurelab, Garamantis has developed the software and the CMS.

The representations on the screens are designed to evoke associations with an analog chalkboard; every content is generated by animated digital “chalk marks”. The mirror surface and black background efficiently conceal the actual monitors from the beholder’s view and thus, words and images appear on the mirrors as if by magic.

Interaction with visitors: The representations on the monolith change according to the viewer’s distance to it, which is determined by a laser range finder.
