9 May 2019, 6:30 pm: "Technology meets art and history at Villa Bienert"

To mark the 100th anniversary of the founding of the Bauhaus, we are building a bridge from 1919 to 2019: between the emergence of new living concepts at the beginning of the last century and the current development of IoT technology for modern living in the smart home, which we are researching.

In the villa, we are venturing into an interdisciplinary experiment with digital technology and the unique room design by the famous artist Piet Mondrian for the lady of the house's bedroom. For the first time, the design concept is directly related to its destination. A projection and the construction lines created by tape rendering allow the room to be virtually redesigned. With this experiment, we demonstrate what a realisation of the Mondrian room could look like.

With the free appropriation of the design in a 360° spatial projection, we also visualise our mostly abstract research topics. The straight lines, pure shapes and colours of abstract painting are used to represent a different kind of networking: the Internet of Things and its technical challenges.

Visitors can also experience the phenomenon of latency in human-machine interaction with a playful demonstrator from the Connected Robotic Lab in the former living room of the Bienert family.

Guided tours will be offered in cooperation with the Albertinum and the Kupferstich-Kabinett, Staatliche Kunstsammlungen Dresden.
