“Creating spaces for discovery and emotions has never been this important!“ Leigh Sachwitz, flora&faunavisions
Workshops, talks, maker spaces, an interactive escape room game: Deutsche Telekom’s Magenta Moon initiative has plenty to explore for everyone. At the heart of it all is the event’s dazzling, immersive Magenta Moon Garden. Designed to spark conversation around sustainability, tech and media skills in a playful and intuitive way, this interactive, walkthrough video installation by flora&faunavisions comprises three distinct visual environments (Sunrise Garden, Moon Garden, Magenta Moon) enriched with intuitive, interactive real-time elements.
The enchanting Moon Garden reveals its magic by moonlight: blooms open and glow, accompanied by soothing fragrances. The shifting, but predictable patterns of interactive sculptures and objects satisfy both mind and eye, making the Moon Garden a great refuge from the everyday bustle – a place for regaining strength and feeling safe and in control. Reflecting the move towards hybrid education concepts that mesh digital teaching with real encounters, the hybrid design combines digital and analogue facets in a seamless way. Here, visitors can raise virtual gardens – while smelling, tasting or picking the actual plants on display, experiencing them with all their senses.
Leigh and Daniel, the two directors of flora&faunavisions will give us an explusive tour through the installation. After that, we'll sit down on stage to discuss the idea behind, the process and how they realized it.
