M HKA gaat digitaal

Met M HKA Ensembles zetten we onze eerste ├ęchte stappen in het digitale landschap. Ons doel is met behulp van nieuwe media de kunstwerken nog beter te kaderen dan we tot nu toe hebben kunnen doen.

We geven momenteel prioriteit aan smartphones en tablets, m.a.w. de in-museum-ervaring. Maar we zijn evenzeer hard aan het werk aan een veelzijdige desktop-versie. Tot het zover is vind je hier deze tussenversie.

M HKA goes digital

Embracing the possibilities of new media, M HKA is making a particular effort to share its knowledge and give art the framework it deserves.

We are currently focusing on the experience in the museum with this application for smartphones and tablets. In the future this will also lead to a versatile desktop version, which is now still in its construction phase.

'I first wanted to find out exactly how that mechanism worked.  A seagull, for instance, that's really just a triangular sail like a delta-glider, with at most flapping ends...'  - Panamarenko

This one-man aircraft recalls Panamarenko’s frail insect flying machines from the seventies. Its construction is not based on the wing mechanism of insects, however, but on the flapping method of birds. The structure comprises a long steel tube with a seat for the pilot at the front, and a tail rudder at the back. The wings have an aluminium frame and are covered with transparent macrolon. The wingtips are made of black foam rubber, which provides the resistance needed to maintain the wings in an optimum position at a speed of 50 km/h.
