For the “Deepfakes: art and its doubles” exhibition from EPFL held by the Laboratory of Experimental Museology of EPFL (eM+ lab), The Countdown Company was mandated to develop the mechanical supports of four different artworks:

  • • a 2.5m x 5m hanging screen attached to a sloped rooftop
  • • a large but movable rear-projected screen
  • • a half cave with images projects on the ground and on the wall (floor + hanging projector support)
  • • a mouse pole for interacting with a digital world with a simple 3D mouse.

In this exhibition was also exposed the Object Navigator.
