Burning Too • Ars Electronica
media façade installation (mapped video projections with interactive video and sound)
Post City Tower at Ars Electronica Festival 2016, Linz, Austria, September 8-12, 2016
23 x 10m (75 x 33 ft)
Don Ritter, 2016

Video projections of fire accompanied with sound cover the tower of the old postal building in Linz, a structure originally designed by Nazi-favored architect Alfred Speer. The audio of the fire is determined by the visual activity of the fire, and the audio of the fireballs determine the distortions of the flames.
