Scientific Eye Catcher

IMGP3272
IMGP3273This two storey high construction marks the Qu3 entry in of the noorderzon.nl festival at Groningen. Naturally I needed a closer look at the mosaic tile used, and I’m not sure if there is any theme holding them together, other than they were all black and white. The festival is largely a music festival but it also has some performance art that focus on using new technology, like the augmented reality Noorderzon Layar.app. This both guides you to current events around the park and can also give you a bird's eye view of your current possition. I haven't been able to work out the grid (overlay) yet, but the technology is impressive.  Getting back to Qu3 they have been promoting creative aspects of science and technology at the festival for past two years, and this year.s theme is energy and healthy ageing.
