We have been talking about this event for months. The Adaptation Exhibition finally come and gone, and it was GREAT!
I was a little bit nervous when I arrived in Berlin last week. Actually, I knew that when we selected the artistic projects last winter, that we were not really ready to share the AGILE code: the documentation was missing, the code was not stable, and the integration was not really effective. So, sharing the AGILE software in such context was risky, especially sharing it with people without a strong IoT background.
All the artists stepped up to the task with great artistic ideas and a technical person on their team. So, not only did they have the support of some AGILE partners like Libelium, BioAssist, or ATOS, but they also received everyday support from colleagues, friends and spouses.
The result is really interesting. Each artistic team put a piece of themselves in their project. These were expressed like so:
- Fountains – tackled concern about water pollution
- Still Touchable? – questioned our relationship with objects in a near future
- E-Camera – enriched our photos with our own emotions
- Floral Automaton – mimicked biological processes of our surroundings
The atmosphere provided by the location for the exposition (chosen by Jolocom) added depth to the artworks presented. Thanks to Carla, Eric and Joachim for organizing such unique event!
