The Raumtaster/space senser are modified, overhead projectors and programmable drawing machines, that transforms an existing dark space into an immersive light drawing.
The machines constitute a hybrid being between creature and space and functions as a sense organ, employing light as a means to touch. A Raumtaster departs from the limited radius of its own area of support, takes possession of its surroundings step by step, and makes no distinction between human being and building.It situates viewers themselves at the center of a mechanical process of drawing and signifying. Luminous lines and fields wander across the walls, ceiling and oor, scanning and demarcating the space.
Small details become im- portant elements within the image. Bare walls function both as projection screens as well as the projected image. While scanning the surface and limits of its surroundings. Raumtaster generates new vistas and horizons within the con nements of a given space. Everything becomes a part of its semiotic process and is included in a on-site preprogrammed, fleeting choreography.
