MIMODEK is an interactive and changing “living” system, which is based on the principles of the natural world yet “grows” from the fabric of the city.
Interactive and evolving installation, developed with Procesing, Java and Open Frameworks

Mimodek is a dynamic and interactive installation, based on on the the principles of the living world.
As all living systems in nature, MIMODEK reflects its own environment. It is site specific, formedby unique, location-related data sources, and by behaviour of the visitors. Every installation evolves into a unique virtual “ecosystem” reflecting its location.
MIMODEK highlights the delicate relation between human beings and their environment, and their connection to other living beings with whom they share this environment.
The project was originally developed for the low-resolution Digital Facade of Medialab-Prado, Madrid. However, it can be adapted to high resolution display settings.
