Exhibition - Prince Pückler’s World Interactive table surface, 1-channel HD video, 6-channel audio, 2006
During his second visit to England from 1826-1829, Prince Pückler-Muskau bought four large-format albums in London. They now contain views of the places Pückler visited, landscapes and places of interest as well as portraits of contemporaries, caricatures and depictions of society events with the prince’s own comments. In order to display the books for visitors we have recreated the souvenir pictures in digital form. Now, visitors can scroll through the pictures with a simple movement of the hand above the surface of the table. The contents of the book are underlined by an audio accompaniment.
