omnivisu

Omnivisu was a temporary interactive installation which took place at the S/U station Warschauer Str. from july 7th through 17th — Tower of Light in »Oberbaum city«

The S/U station Warschauer street is one of Berlin's most important interchange stations, especially at night. From the Warschauer bridge, a wide panorama over the center of Berlin presents itself and near the bank of the river Spree, where the Berlin wall used to run. Here the characteristic tower of the former light–bulb industry Narva rises. This is not only a symbol of the desolated GDR–industries, but also a relict of the new–economy boom in berlin and its ending as well as the arrival of media corporations like MTV and Universal.

A gazing tower

The unmistakable landmark of the area is transformed into a building with human character, equipped with the eyes of the people who interact with the installation. They can participate directly and in real-time through a showcase which is placed on the busy site of the bridge. Once somebody looks into it, their eyes are filmed. The video signal is transmitted and projected on the facade of the building. A big brother who sees the world with your eyes.
