At the invitation of PASSAGE CEO Werner Prödl, the Ars Electronica Futurelab has created an interactive installation custom tailored to The PASSAGE. “Innocence” is the title of a work that has to do with Linzers’ childhood memories of The PASSAGE. The site of the installation is the area in front of the elevators on the Ground Floor. All visitors passing through this space on their way to and from the elevators, the information desk or the parking garage are captured by two cameras, and their images are displayed in real time on a 2½-m2 monitor set up in front of the bank of elevators. Pedestrians walking towards the monitor see themselves “approaching themselves, as it were,” and find themselves transported into a fairy-tale world.
