With Complex Compound visual artist Robbert van der Horst realizes the first version of his experiment into interactive, volatile architecture. It is a construction which consists of movable architectonic elements. Through interaction of visitors new compositions can be formed but the elements also might be spread out through the park.
Van der Horst positions the building as a temporary result of social interaction and does not only explore the essence of building but also maps the environment. In collaboration with data strategist Joost Plattel all elements are connected with the Internet of Things (LORA) and realtime data are collected about position, temperature and movement. This results in a dynamic digital map that serves as historical record but also gives focus to the process of interaction and new forms of use.
After showing this test at Zone2Source Amstelpark the project can be seen at Oerol Festival Terschelling, Over het IJ Festival Amsterdam and Going Nomad in Amsterdam.
