Monolith is a permanent 4.10 meters tall visual installation in the entrance hall of a recently-built energy-efficient skyscraper next to Vienna’s Donaukanal river.
With the use of sensors, the building’s complete energy consumption and production is measured throughout the year. Monolith is an animated, generative visual artwork based on that gathered data : heating, photovoltaic energy and electricity consumption is fed into different algorithms for generating visual output. A project of Studio Process and CheckPoint Media.
