Bauhaus.Orbits_Discourse and structure – Experimentation in software and visualization

The Bauhaus Orbits installation is a 360° projection surface – a site-specific Bauhaus 100 project dedicated to critically establishing the Bauhaus less as a visual style, but an intellectual discourse. The form of the installation references the vaults of the historical lecture room at Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, while its content is distilled through data science’s and digital humanities’ approach to the historic Bauhaus books, which are granulated into data graphs and visualised as an immaterial world of discourse formation. The project surface, which resembles the skin of a discursive space, was meant to enable tactile navigation.
