We created and animated the algorithmic cartoon citizens of Ikonia (who communicate using sign language) for a local public event.

City Library of Bremen

The Sign City of Ikonia was a commissioned work for the new City Library grand opening in Bremen. Young and old people alike were invited to populate the virtual Sign City of Ikonia (“Zeichenstadt Ikonia”) with new customized inhabitants online. The assembled characters were then animated by algorithm so they would walk around and talk to the audience using sign language. Life and interaction of the Ikonians were displayed as a large scale outdoor projection in public.
