Thermal Impression Sustainability and energetic exchanges are mostly imperceptible. How can one engage people with the invisible?
We handle a tool widely-used by engineers : infrared thermography. We propose a digital installation which generates a thermal mirror : a thermographic view of a part of the facade and the passers-by. A wooden framed transparent screen, a thermal infrared camera and a short throw projector will be the only tools necessary to create this intervention. This screen acts as an interface interlacing the pedestrian, the building skin and its users.
Thus, this lay-out will create two ways of interacting with the device. When in front of the thermal impression the individuals are observers. However when behind the screen, they become the actor, experimenting with the relationship between their body and the environment. The individuals will be represented as a silhouette made of cold (blue) zones and warm (red) zones. They will be able to relate themselves to the thermal properties of a building, with its core and skin and therefore better understand energetic exchanges. One will comprehend his own thermal presence. We believe this installation will stimulate environmental responsibility.
This real-time intervention would take place on an active pathway along the building facade. Bellonahuset is our case study..
