About the Drop Shadow Talks
---------------------------
With the current generation of operating systems the drop shadow effect entered the graphical user interface to a new extent. In this context it raises not only windows from background wallpapers; it also stands for a visually enriched interface that strives towards three-dimensionality. Loaded with rich imagery, photorealistic icons and pseudo three-dimensional configurations the graphical user interface yet remains tied to its flat medium. Bewildered by this paradox, the graphical user interface leaves the office it was made for and becomes a pop culture phenomenon. This season the Drop Shadow Talks reply to current developments on the visually enriched layer for machine interaction. In the shades of evening lectures the Drop Shadow Talks will present art and projects influenced and inspired by the baroque graphical user interface.

This talk
---------
Bei allen Ansichten, Blickwinkeln, Betrachtungsweisen und Perspektiven: die Komplexitat unserer Welt erfordert Fokussierung und Scharfstellung. Aber was passiert wenn aus 2D 3D wird? Wie verhalt es sich mit Dimensionssteigerung und suggerierter Dreidimensionalitat. Wie arbeiten Gestalter, wenn sie Installationen in die Zweidimensionalitat zuruckfuhren? Wo verschmelzen die Grenzen zwischen Raum und Flache, Architektur und Design? Einen Schwung Antworten hat Lars Harmsen im GepÃck. The talk will be in German.
