Ich Du die Welt

Ich du die Welt (Me You the World) is an interactive A/V installation and the graduation project in Communication-Design of Jan Aulbach, realized in February 2015.

Based on the theories of Martin Buber’s „Ich und Du“ and Jürgen Habermas’ „Theory of Communicative Action“ visitors are encountering a strange situation. While reading texts and exploring the setup, the visitors will touch sensitive areas on the table, which trigger an audio-visual reaction of the room. Via the learning progress of understanding the „language“ of the room itself visitors start to interact with each other and the initially foreign situation is transformed in an social situation. In this situation a communization is happening. The visitors start to experience there immanent principle of interaction in a new and externalized way.

Realised with capacitive touch sensors, controlled by an Arduino which sends MIDI signals to Resolume Avenue.
