On a Mission

looking straight forward

‚5062‘ – is running



*pjew* it’s done.

last weekend we (Melanie, Claudia, Laurin, Andrea and me), could build up the whole installation in two days. Everything worked quite well. In the beginning we had some small problems with „getting the sphere running“ but after we got some help of Tino Hager (via Internet-conference) we got the whole thing running. The official opening-ceremony will be in November, in Salzburg. You can take a look at the sphere 24h a day. It’s right in the „Bezirkshauptmannschaft“ in Salzburg (next to the Railwaystation, GPS coordinates are 47°48’53.1″N 13°02’37.1″E)

The whole project is a competition we (Melanie and me) won in January 2016. between the pictures is the concept written by Melanie.


KunstVorarlberg 2016

currently… most of the time i’m working on „the sphere“ for the KunstAmBau project in Salzburg. we’re going to build up the whole thing in about one month. A few weeks after this KunstAmBau-thing, KunstVorarlberg is going to have an other exhibition in Feldkirch. Today i found some time to make a small scale-modell of the work i’d like to show… i’m already happy with the first impression altough its still a way to go.262_KunstVorarlberg_02

Hackathon #16

Last weekend I could join the „UmmaHüsla Hackathon 2016“ in Dornbirn. My goal was to program an Arduino computer so we’ll be able to steer our rolling Sphere. The Sphere will roll around in Salzburg for 4 Month. Of course most of those 4 Month I will be in Dornbirn. This is why the whole construction is going to respond to a GSM-Mobile-phone-Module. Some how I managed to program the whole thing that it will respond to Messages. The big advantage of this is that I’m going to be independent of any W-LAN, Firewall or anything else that could block my radio-controlled sphere.

New Bench

since about 1/2 year i dry the wood that i’m going to use on upcomming projects in our house. Due to the fact that it should dry for at least half a year (or even longer) you should know where to place it, otherwise it will be in your way all day. so i decided to make a bench. looks good and makes a tidy room…IMG_4608

Working on the ‚5082 Tontauben‘-Project

today we could start the first working (scale 1.25) prototype of the sphere.

the next one will have to be 25x bigger. So in the end the sphere will be around 200cm in diameter and i’s going to have a weight of about 160kg. only the sphere. So, there’s still a long way to go.
