Arthur are three networked LED light machines that act as a public communication system for the Theatre of the Arts in Zurich. With their own sign language they act as a medium to promote and organise student projects on site and online.

2d Binary codes are displayed and can be scanned by mobile phones forwarding to the web thus turning Arthur in a gateway to the online world. Next to that, Arthur is displaying twitter feeds in realtime.


Three devices are part of an ArtNET (DMX) network. The software (C++/Qt) has three modes: Local, Network (for use ie. with vvvv) and Schedule (GIF files programmable via custom web API).
