In the second year we had several courses where emphasis was put on setting up our own companies, project management, financials and writing your own business plan. The companies should try to sell products or services that have a focus on what we learn in our study. 5 Colleagues and me founded the company “Lichtarbeit” (translated: Lightwork) and we developed our own tool Lichtbringer (“light deliver”) which has been coded with VVVV – a software that enables you to program visual arts in realtime and that you can combine with interaction elements like MIDI controllers or beat detection and, what we did, an interaction method with Nintendo’s Wii remote. We made some visuals in clubs (eg. Spring08/Graz) and tried to develop the application similar to a rather information visualisation-tool. We were able to stretch the computer screen over three projectors. It was really an interesting work to developing our Lichtbringer.

The next movie clip should give you an idea about our perfomance. It was recorded in Linz on 18th April.
