This academic project, completed in 2014, was as a Master Thesis for the interdisciplinary master program MediaArchitecture, with the collaboration of the Computer Science and Media bachelor program, at the Bauhaus- University Weimar.
It was realized in Meiningen as the highlight of a festival commemorating the 100th anniversary of Georg II, Duke of Saxe-Meiningen, also known as the “Theater Duke” due to his contribution to the theater discipline. The interactive projection was meant to show an abstract interpretation of the 12 principles of theater developed by Georg II, as well as to engage the local population through the creation of a fictional story about a “theater machine” designed by the Duke, whose drawings were supposedly found on the basement of the theater museum of Meiningen. This machine was then built and, at one point in the event, the people could use it to influence and control the projection in real time.
