Cabinet of Curiosities Digital

For Nod-A, promoting innovation agency and digital design, architecture Coudamy Paul imagined the Cabinet of Curiosities Digital, a mobile exhibition system, removable and adaptable. Shaped stylized tree, the installation consists of a central leg supporting three bright circles hung with textiles, defining space and lighting works. The metal structure incorporates electrical wiring and supports long curtains of fabric to create alcoves and shape the visitor's journey.

On the Cabinet of Curiosities Digital, Paul Coudamy states:

"The Cabinet of Curiosities Digital is an interactive mobile device, which presents fifteen works, objects, applications and prototypes. This is a full hybrid system at the border of the gallery, showroom and laboratory uses. It positions "exposure time not as the culmination of a work but as a stage of experimentation and its realization" (Samuel Bianchini.) The pieces presented questioning the use of new technologies and how they change our lives.

The simple design of the structure is a machine that offers a versatile device to expose digital works with very different aspects in up to space conditions.

Unplugged, the SCC is completely removable, made of an interlocking system it is installed on site. All items fit into a truck, the structure occasionally moved as required. Modules and works may be more or less spaced to occupy 10sqm in condensed mode in the central shaft up to a hundred square meters with works around.

Designed as a tree with its canopy, the SCC consists of a central base that supports three bright circles which forms a landmark for visitors. Circles can be rotated 20 ° to suit the desired configuration. The art system 3 leaves and the center post facilitates the passage of electric cables. The opening of the alveoli in the circles are freely configurable with sails that can adapt spaces. Create closed and hidden alcoves routes between the works, separate areas, openings ... Next the materials used can play the presentation of works by altering the levels of transparency to create intimate spaces sheltered from light, shadows with translucent fabrics or transparencies.

The shafts are designed as steel trunks, around the start of the branches can be freely set to the 360 ​​° position of the plates of different diameters and lengths to suit the circular shape of the tree, and to present objects of different sizes. The foot is covered with resin sockets which can house electrical and technical parts which cost along the central portion.

Resin ribbed blue, cubic modules serve as stand up for the works, technical and block seating for visitors. Nesting boxes 3 dimensions, start into each other for easy transport. "
