ANDREAS MUXEL Physical Transformation

Data as a numeric representation of the measurement and detection of our environment has a high degree of abstraction. The transformation of data is aimed at improving accessibility, the classification into specific contexts and offering an interpretation. Transformation creates meaning. The aim of the project was, to bring this abstract data again into the form of physical objects and their parameters (material, shape and movement) to create a visual and tactile experience – especially in regard to the data’s origin and meaning. The sudents were asked not to take already existing data and therefore the project started with the observation of the Chlodwigplatz, a central square in the south of Cologne as a common source for further interpretations and transformations.

In 2004 he received a diploma in Media Communication Design from the University of Applied Sciences Vorarlberg, Austria. Between 2004 and 2007 he worked as an interaction and interface designer for the MARS-Exploratory Media Lab at the Fraunhofer Institute for Media Communication. In 2008 he finished his postgraduate studies at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne. In his works he is interested in the mixture of digital code and physical material and the man-machine interface. His projects has been shown at many international festivals of media art. Beside that he works as a freelance art director.

Since 2013 he has a professorship of “Interface / Interaction Design” at the Köln International School of Design.
