‘Ecosmosis’ exhibition presents in 650 m2 12 ecological projects of spatial design providing information on issues of sustainability to uninformed and informed audiences. Exhibition installation design principles:
1. To create an entrance area reflecting ‘Eco-osmosis,’ and a main dark exhibition area that evokes a rhythm of play and surprise through video projections on floor.
2. The first led to define and vividly illuminate entrance through green filters on existing light columns. The second directed the design of inactive and active pattern on floor - an interplay of always dark and playfully informative rectangle areas. The latter are 12, each 3m X 4m, have motion capture cameras installed on ceiling of 3.5m high, allowing a tailor-made new media art program to detect visitors’ movement and evoke audio and visual effects.
3. Sustainability principles: immaterial means, minimal waste (rented projectors, PCs, graphic cards, motion capture cameras, infrared filters), two plexi-glass panels that remain in exhibition area, recyclable acrylic filters.
4. Low budget: 7.000 €, 10,7 €/m2.
