Spots Simulator (2005)


realities:united Architects with John Dekron


Spots Berlin was a media installation that converted an office block located in Berlin, Germany's famous Potsdamer Platz district into one of world's largest media facades. Designed by the German architects realities:united, the large surface of lights was made up of 1800 conventional fluorescent lights. The Spots Simulator, a collaboration with John Dekron, allowed users to display their own videos and navigate around a virtual representation of Potsdamer Platz. The custom software was used by artists, advertisers, and by the general public. Spots Simulator was authored using the Max/Jitter programming platform and was available for both Windows and Macintosh operating systems.


Max/MSP/Jitter, OpenGL, QuickTime.
