Explore the future of energy and industry in this installation, pushing the boundaries of immersive AR technologies.

Explore Industrial Futures

Maschinenkangwerk creates an immersive play space. The industrial heritage Gesenkschmiede Hendrichs springs to life around its visitors, enmeshing them in a captivating blend of light and sound installation.

Just by walking through the space, visitors impact their surroundings and contribute to a dynamic sound- and lightscape.

Embracing the Source Material

The project emerged in a dialogue between museum staff, festival organizers, and the game development team. Particularly critical to the project's success was the careful and conscious selection and amplification of the source material – the stunningly preserved industrial heritage site Gesenkschmiede Hendrichs.

Using Groundbreaking Technology

Maschinenklangwerk relies on cutting-edge AR technology, using industrial Bluetooth-based indoor-tracking, combined with spatialized audio, networked multiplayer, and DMX stage lights to create an immersive playful space.

The entire exhibition space comes to live around and through its visitors.
