joeressen+kessner develop transmedia interventions for site-specific works. They generate data systems that control audiovisual projections which are applied in real-time to a given site. The implementation of the digital dimension in an analog space via projection allows to disintegrate found settings and limitations and permits a redesign of references. The physical space with its architectural, spatial, and temporal ratios becomes part of a media system. >> The Interview
