floating.numbers / Interactive Installation


Discipline: Communication

Discipline: Communication

“10+5 = God. The Power of Numbers and Signs” is the title of the special exhibition at the Jewish Museum Berlin which commissioned ART+COM to design and realize its “floating.numbers” project. A nine-meter-long interactive table is the central element in this installation. Hundreds of numbers float on its surface and flow as a continuum of symbols through the exhibition room. Time and again individual numerals emerge from this stream of numbers and become interactive. As soon as the visitors touch them they divulge their contents in the form of texts, images, films and animations: their origin and their historical, religious, mystical, sociological or mathematical meaning. Elements in the mediumistic installation include a large-scale projection and a sensitive table top. The project is based on purely generative (computational) design. The installation gives users the impression of dealing with an autonomously functioning system. The contents were researched and compiled by Hürlimann and Lepp.
