For a book on the occasion of the 50th anniversary of the Bielefeld University of Applied Sciences, this AR object was designed as a metaphor for the Department of Design. When the Department of design emerged from the School of Crafts and Applied Arts, the pen was initially still an ink pen. With the appearance of the four-color ballpoint pen, various fields of study unite under one roof. Through the new field of study Digital Media and Experiment, the smart pen enters the stage and the boundaries between disciplines blur. Inspired by Oskar Schlemmer's triadic ballet, the pens enter into a shared choreography in space. Creative excellence emerges in collaboration; productive interfaces between the traditional and the contemporary emerge in mutual encirclement. In the future, too, the interplay of the different disciplines will be lived and carried to the outside at the Department of Design.
Release of the book was in September 2021.
