BROKEN LUNA IS A THIRD-PERSON PUZZLE-ADVENTURE WITH SOME JUMP’N’RUN ELEMENTS.
Manipulate objects with magnetic impulse to reach goals and solve puzzles.
Luna is an eleven-year old girl who wakes up very confused on an alien planet.
Surrounded by small workstations, she tries to make her way through the strange world.
It’s curious – and a little daunting – although she never have been here before, it’s kinda familiar.
But maybe it’s just because she always had imagined an alien planet like this and because she can
play around with its physical circumstances. Luna has the force to manipulate the environment,
like the environment is manipulating her. She clearly feels, that she came here for a reason,
a mighty force she has to face sooner or later to find the answer to life, the universe and everything.

Views is an interactive media installation by Arno Deutschbauer, Moritz Haberkorn, Marlene Hirtreiter, Esther Kao, Joachim Prügl, Tanja Schantl und Christoph Tripp.
The installation deals with the modern problem of Image manipulation in the media. The
history of photography or of the so called technical images has been linked with image
manipulation since its early beginnings. Its use in the media is so widely common that it is
hard to tell which images have been processed and which have not. The installation
concentrates on the method of field-of-view to manipulate the image. Through field-of-view
we can easily change the meaning of images, because we can decide before the image is
made, and also afterwards, what the end-consumer will see or will focus on. The
installation picks up this idea by projecting a video on a screen but only showing a detail of
the picture. Through a fifteen puzzle the visitor can shift the field-of-view
in the image so that he can reveal new details and meanings of the video. The image as a
whole is not shown throughout the installation, because it is, even as a whole picture, only
a small detail of the whole situation.
Between the 14th April 2010 and 22nd June 2010 Tanja Schantl and Mathias Janko are exhibiting objects – created by combining media and technology – which show the versatility of reality in relation to the perceptions of the viewer.
The different installations deal with awareness and communication. The viewer perceives a situation and tries to become aware of it with, inter alia, nonverbal communication. Using these technical devices encourages the viewer to stray away from his usual mental thought process and instead strive for a greater understanding. This therefore means that „right“ answer is not always sought out.
According to Paul Watzlawick, who is the inspiration behind the issue in this thesis, „You can’t NOT communicate“. Communication arises as soon as a person perceives somebody or something, because any conduct has a communicative character. You’re forced to communicate, because you can’t NOT behave.
An approach to illustrate Watzlawicks view is made in one of the installations consisting of many tiles of a mirror, which are attached to the wall like an unusual mosaic, pointing in different directions. The mirrors form a total surface of about 20 by 60 cm. Before the exhibition a beamer projects different keywords („Wirklichkeit“, „Wahrheit“, „Realität“) onto the mirrors from different positions. These keywords are then reflected by the mirrors in different directions and become visible on walls, floor and ceiling. There they get painted and the beamer is removed. The keywords are then readable by a viewer standing at the beamer’s different positions looking into the mirrors.
It’s generally claimed that mirrors reflect reality. What is not considered is which reality is being reflected. The viewer is invited to choose a position to find the truth and then interpret the meaning of the reflection.
The ‘Vernissage’ is the highlight of the thesis.
In advance, detailed plans are worked out and logged experiments are done on the projects, which will be shown at the exhibition.
