‘The title “Semaphore” is borrowed from computer sciences where it signifies a data structure which enables the mutual connection of parallel processes. In this project Refik Anadol develops a 3d video mapping story-telling which enables him to experiment with visual aspects of surface and volume through the projection of augmented forms, structures and systems fitting the architecture of the Sterncenter. It also plays with showing or disguising the analogue architecture by overlapping physical and virtual. Anadol’s abstract forms and repetitions just as well as his colours and geometrical formations translate the principles of op-art into the digital age.
