"We plan in line with a course for students to create interactive presentations for the base of the Solar Peace Sculpture. One idea could be that the active presence of the viewer around the sculpture or the active extracted energy of the solar panels will be integrated into the presentation. In line with the sculpture a digital supply is then related to subjects like energy consumption and scarcity of resources. The students get the unique opportunity to participate on an art project."

HTW facing new project challenges

Prof. Dr. Schmidt-Gönner with Fred George

With the planned multi-media-installation in the base of the Solar Peace Sculpture different construction details of the sculpture will have to be changed and adapted, like Prof. Dr. Günter Schmidt-Gönner says. The engineers of the HTW prepare these technical components, which should be moved in the next project phase.

Students Project at the University of Saarland, Prof. Dr. Antonio Krüger

After the start of the students project for design and implementation of the multi-media installation at the foot of the Solar Peace Sculpture the first approaches were shown in a presentation at the university.

About 70 students of the computer science department headed by Prof. Dr. Antonio Krüger are involved in this project. Our short film gives you first impressions of the presentation. The focus is on playful interaction through touch screens and smartphoneswith simultaneous connections to the Internet and social networks.

In the winter semester starting October the work will
continue, and will be implemented soon in the foot of the sculpture. We will inform you further on the progress of the project on this page.
