2.1 Project Introduction

The city of Karlsruhe was awarded the title City of Media Arts by UNESCO in 2019. Events such as the Schlosslichtspiele, but also permanent facilities such as the ZKM, are representative of this award.

The Karlsruhe University of Applied Sciences would also like to take part in making the city unique through media art.

Which made us think hard in arrange to work on realizing the thought Swimming Pixels project and applying it on the ground. To be implemented as part of the Information Technology - Laboratory course.

For this purpose, we have construct floating LED pixels that can be controlled with the help of a MIDI launchpad, among other things, and thus let the castle pond shine with different light sequences.
