Flash 99 Rooms

is a unique internet art project that interweaves wall painting, photography, animation and sound in a manner entirely unknown until now. Shortly after its launch in June 2004, more than two million individuals throughout the world have already visited this interdisciplinary composite work of art.

99rooms stemmed from the mystical, often apolocalyptically charming pictures created by Berlin artist Kim Köster within the countless vacated premises of East Berlin‘s industrial sector. Photos of these paintings were initially produced in digital form and then animated through a cooperative effort between Richard Schumann & Stephan Schulz and then subsequently complemented through a personal sounddesign from Johannes Buenemann. The final product of this year long effort is a scintillating intermediary world which invites the observer into an journey through its morbidly-beautiful rooms.

Interesting Company

Here’s an intersting company
MovingLabs.com

Effective Web Applications

Movinglabs creates web applications. We build them because we enjoy it.

Our focus is on function and usability for all projects. We actually use all of them ourselves because they each fullfill one or more of our needs.

Because
we do not spend weeks in planning and specifying our applications, we
have applications up and running within extremly short development
times. This allows us to fix your real pains first.
We started this approach because we believe that the success of
applications is in small details and you can never plan and design
those details, you must experience them first.

The
creation of a flexible platform for the development of even more web
applications has become one of the most important aspects of our work.

Suggestions for the next project? Contact us!
