Budding artist Javier Lloret’s thesis project for “Interface Culture” at the University of Arts and Industrial Design Linz can’t be missed. Lloret transformed the entire façade of the Ars Electronica building into an interactive Rubik’s Cube in a project called Puzzle Façade.
Lloret programmed a portable device—a handheld interface cube—to mimic the function of everyone's favorite puzzle. The handheld device manipulates the installation via wireless technology, so that changes made on the device are reflected by changes in the light structure on the building. Players are given the handheld device and use it to solve the puzzle, which appears on the façade. The puzzle is especially challenging, for the player can only see two sides of the installation at a time.
