Urban Sun by Roosegaarde cleans public spaces of the coronavirus by Studio Roosegaarde
"World's first Urban Sun cleans public spaces of the coronavirus for better human gatherings. Inspired by the light of the sun, and backed by scientific research that proves a new, specific light can safely clean up to 99.9% of the coronavirus, Studio Roosegaarde launches Urban Sun.
Daan Roosegaarde and his team of designers, external experts, and scientists challenged themselves to discover how the power of light can be used to combat viruses and therefore enhance our well-being. Research shows that though traditional 254nm UV light is harmful, the new far-UVC light with a wavelength of 222 nanometers can actually sanitize viruses safely. Urban Sun, a project in development by Studio Roosegaarde, shines a large circle of this far-UVC light into public spaces, cleaning those spaces of the coronavirus. It acts as an additional layer of protection to current government rules. Urban Sun aims to inspire hope. It combats the negative impact of social isolation by aiming to improve cultural gatherings, sporting events, public squares, and schoolyards."

"Installation project by Fred Penelle & Yannick Jacquet
After more than 60 exhibitions around the world since 2011, Belgian printmaker Fred Penelle and Swiss media artist Yannick Jacquet are looking at reinventing and deepening their collaborative research once more.
This time exploring large scale interventions in the public space.

SOUNDFIELD by Christopher Thomas Allen and Tim Cowie.
"Our response to this challenge was to explore the relationship between sound, space and energy while referencing the building's long history of aeronautical design and engineering. The resulting piece was a sound reactive video installation built with custom software in Openframeworks that uses a realtime fluid dynamics engine to distort and manipulate a set of vector fields. We designed and developed this custom software to allow us to visually map this huge space and to create a playful interactive piece that would engage the audience at the event while they walking through the tunnel.
We used a set of six 20k Full HD Christie projectors with very wide angle lenses to cover the walls and ceiling of the tunnel in three separate bands along the lengh of the space. Each of these arches of light contained a pair of Naim Audio speakers and a pair of vocal microphones at their bases. As the software generated different virtual energy forces that slowly moved down the space, the audience were encouraged to interact with these visuals by releasing their own sonic forces into the room. The resulting audio visual emissions and graphic turbulence created in these vector fields drove a multi channel piece of sound design in Ableton Live using OSC and Midi messages. The resulting sound scape sampled, effected and distorted the audience's utterances and triggered additional lighting effects at each end of the space."
320° LICHT at Gasometer Oberhausen by URBANSCREEN.
"....a fascinating game with shapes and light. - Within a radius of 320 degrees graphic patterns grow and change on the 100-metre high inside wall of the Gasometer [Oberhausen, Germany].
The observer experiences the interplay between real and virtual space, in which the Gasometer seems to dissolve into its own, filigree structures and yet finally always reverts to its clear shape..."

On PolymorphArt.net, you will find hundreds of hand-picked multi-genre art projects in between art, digital art and philosophy. Discover contemporary developments in art that take place within the framework of the ongoing digital transformation of our society, but which are only very rarely seen in the mainstream media.
PolymorphArt.net is about contexts, viewpoints, visual axes, and changes of perspective. Depending on the context, your perspective on the specific art project will change. Along the way you can find, coincidentally or serendipitously, other projects that correspond to the chosen artistic, technical, mood, or philosophy-related context you’ve chosen.
