Brothers Jan und Tim Edler have been making a name for themselves as “mediatects” since the early 2000s with a series of large-scale art and hybrid-art installations, such as the spectacular BIX light-and-media façade they designed for the Kunsthaus Graz art museum. They are contracted as media artists for construction projects all around the world. For example, for the multiple-award-winning contemporary arts center in Córdoba (architects: Nieto Sobejano Arquitectos) they created a dynamic light-and-media façade.
For the Futurium (architects: Richter Musikowski) in Berlin they developed a lighting scheme that tracks and analyses visitor flows via motion sensors and uses the information to “accompany” visitors with their own individual light auras. And for the subway system in Toronto, realities:united created an interactive, touchscreen-controlled installation called LightSpell.
