How Do You Do

High Tech Circle MGNT

Meet: Toon Rooijmans (NL)


During a hackathon at the VPRO Medialab, architect Toon Rooijmans and the other members of the What If Collective, came up with the MGNT project: they created a magnetic projection circle that responds to visitors. Their source of inspiration: The birth of electronic music in the Netherlands exactly 60 years ago. But how do you translate an idea into an actual installation with a 10-metre diameter? Sensors, infrared cameras & the Xbox One Kinect guarantee an immense stream of live data … and then what?
