Puzzle Facade / Urban Intervention

Discipline: Communication

Puzzle Facade brings the experience of solving a Rubik’s cube to the urban space. It transforms the Ars Electronica’s media facade into a giant Rubik’s cube, inviting passers-by to engage with an interactive experience that takes place in Linz (Austria). In Puzzle Facade, the player interacts with the specially designed interface-cube. The interface-cube is fitted with electronic components to keep track of rotation and orientation. This data is sent to a computer that runs the Puzzle Facade software. The software changes the lights and color of the large-scale Ars Electronica’s media facade in correlation to the handheld interface-cube.

The designer shows his experimental interest in the development of communication possibilities by using contemporary technologies and arouses the recipients curiosity how he will go on further with his next projects.
