Created by Robert Henke. Titled Fall. Published April 2016 at the L.E.V. Festival.

Fall, by Robert Henke, is a work that details an abstract view of 1950 Bavaria which disappeared underwater following the construction of a newly built Sylvenstein reservoir. The technology employs a randomizing algorithm to generate patterns. I think it’s really cool because it is not only conceptually strong, but also because it incorporate many elements of the senses. From changing colors to prickling sound, the technology is very well integrated.

From what I understand, the algorithm generates randomly from a set amount of patterns. The randomness of the installation has much more to do with how the light refracts than with how the algorithm generates. Creating these complex yet beautiful overlays seems to have been a daunting computing task.
